Garlic White Rice

Course Side Dish

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup uncooked jasmine or basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot that has a tight-fitting lid, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. (Note: do not use the lid yet, this will come later on.)

  2. Add garlic, salt, and pepper and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant.

  3. Add the rice, a pinch of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high.

  4. Once boiling cover the pot with lid and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 12-14 minutes or until the water had been absorbed and the ride is tender. (Note: do not lift the lid before 12 minutes or stir the rice at any time)

  5. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

Tip of the Day

Fermented foods can help balance your gut microbiome–those microorganisms living in the gut. While many of the good bacteria from fermented foods might be killed by stomach acid, fermented foods can still provide health benefits from their byproducts including B vitamins, organic acids, and functional peptides. These help keep your immune system strong and your body happy.
