Y'all... I love love love rice - any kind, any flavor, any style. Doesn't matter.
In a perfect world, all meals would be accompanied with rice.
So when I say that this is the BEST white rice I've ever tasted, it means a lot. This isn't your normal rice. Oh no. There is nothing bland or 'eh' about this rice. It's so good, you'll be wishing you just ate 4 big bowls of it for dinner and left behind the entree.
Instead of simply adding white rice to a pot of boiling water, you first brown the rice alongside onions and garlic and then you add the liquid. Such a simple tweak that pays off BIG.
Give it a try the next time you're serving up a side (or entree!) of rice!
Brazilian White Rice
2 tablespoons onion, minced
2 cups long grain white rice
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups hot chicken broth (use the microwave and a glass measuring cup!)
Place the rice in a fine mesh colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Set aside.
Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion for one minute. Stir in the garlic and cook until the garlic is golden brown. Add the rice and salt and cook, stirring often, until the rice begins to brown. Pour in the hot broth and stir. Reduce heat to low, cover, and allow to simmer until the water is absorbed, 20-25 minutes.
