Brazillian White Rice
Brazilian White Rice from Allrecipes
2 cups long-grain white rice
2 tablespoons minced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups hot water
Place the rice in a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water; set aside.
Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion in the oil for one minute. Stir in the garlic and cook until the garlic is golden brown. Add the rice and salt and cook and stir until the rice begins to brown. Pour hot water over rice mixture and stir. Reduce heat to low, cover the saucepan, and allow to simmer until the water has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
Review: Great way to add flavor to rice. I think next time I'll add some bacon or mushrooms! Overall simple recipe with lots of possibilities!
