One of the challenges to any main course meal is finding a great side dish. But we got just the thing! Let’s see what’s on the menu this morning when we grab a Bite with Belkys.
The Dish: Garlic Butter Rice
2 Tbs. Butter, divided
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice, long-grain (Basmati or Jasmine)
2 1/2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh cracked black pepper
2 tbs. fresh chopped parsley, plus extra for garnish
Method of Preparation:
Melt 2 tbs. butter in a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1
minute. Stir in the rice to coat with the garlic butter.
Add broth, dried parsley, salt and pepper. Stir well and bring to a boil.
Cover with lid and reduce heat to low so the liquid is simmering very gently. Cook until all liquid has been absorbed- about 15 minutes.
Uncover and add fresh parsley; stir well. Remove from heat. Cover with lid and let stand 5-10 minutes, until soft.
Fluff rice and stir in remaining butter. Season with salt, pepper and garnish with more fresh parsley.
