Lemon Garlic Rice

February 14, 2011

Rice is very easy but it can also be very boring.  Here’s an easy way to jazz it up just a bit.  Lime works great too.  If I’d had parsley in the fridge, I would have added a little along with the lemon juice.

  • White Rice, 2 cups
  • Olive Oil, 2 tablespoons or so
  • Garlic, 5 or 6 cloves
  • Lemons, 2

Mince the garlic.  Zest the lemons and then squeeze the juice from the remains.

Heat the olive oil over medium heat in a medium-size saucepan.  Add the garlic and rice and stir it for a few minutes, until the rice starts to turn white.  Add the zest.

Add four cups of water, increase the heat and bring it to a boil.  Cover the pot, reduce the heat to low and let it steam for about 20 minutes.

When the rice is done, stir in the lemon juice.

Garnish with a lemon slice, serve and enjoy!
