In an effort to balance out my cupcake recipes and try and tip the scales back in the direction of "healthy" foods - I'm posting my very favorite rice recipe. I make this recipe all the time - for us - for company - for clients - and everybody loves it. You just can't go wrong with herbed basmati rice.
1 teaspoon oil
1 cup basmati rice
1 clove garlic
1 cup water
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped
3 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon fresh basil (or oregano)
1 teaspoon fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Heat oil in skillet. Add rice and garlic and saute until lightly toasted.
Add water, broth and salt to pan. Bring to a boil. Cover and let simmer 15 minutes.
Let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
Stir in onions, nuts, cheese and fresh herbs.
This recipe is even better when it's made with lots fresh herbs. Unfortunately, in the middle of January, I am lacking great herbs but when I make it in the height of summer when herbs are at their peak - it's even more amazing. Trust me on this one.
