We love rice; black, red, white, wild…….you name it. Plus we love garlic. Most everyone has heard of garlic mashed potatoes but what about garlic rice? Had to think about it for a day and this is what I came up with. It takes some time to roast the garlic. I did it the day before then added it to the rice the day I cooked it. The flavor is creamy, light and surprisingly nutty in flavor.
- 1 cup white rice ( I would say any kind should work)
- 2 cup chicken broth
- 1 head of pre roasted garlic
Squeeze garlic out of pods. Smash garlic in a sauce pan add broth then mix well. Add rice, stir then heat to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for 40 minutes. Fluff before serving. Yummy stuff
Roasting garlic. You might have a garlic roasting terra cotta bowl, if not a baking dish with a lid should work. Heat oven to 350, cut top off garlic just so the cloves are exposed. Remove excess outside leaves if necessary. Drizzle good olive oil into the cavaties of the garlic sprinkle with salt and pepper. With cover on bake 30 minutes. Remove cover, drizzle some more olive oil and bake again 30 minutes. Let cool
As always we hope you enjoy
