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.
