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

Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms, or SNPs (pronounced “snips”), are slight variations in our genetic code that can occur during DNA replication. These variations may have no effect on our bodies or they may impact how we utilize nutrients and medications.

Nutrigenomics is the study of how the food we eat and supplements we take interact with our specific gene expression. It’s a major reason why there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all way of eating. With genomic testing, Sally can provide specific nutrition recommendations based off of your individual genomics. While you can’t get rid of a SNP, proper nutrition support can often help mitigate the negative effects of some gene SNPs like fatigue, brain fog, depression, poor digestion, and inflammation.
