Jazzed Up Rice

This is a great side for just about any meal. The extra step of browning the rice in oil first adds such a wonderful nutty layer of flavor to this dish. Don't want the flavors quite as subtle for your rice; then double the shallots and/or garlic. Turn this into a stand alone meal by adding pre-cooked small bite sized pieces of beef, chicken, pork or shrimp.

Keep in mind that if you choose a different type of rice than listed here you will want to adjust the amount of stock and the actual rice cooking time according to the directions for that type of rice.


  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin oil
  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • 2 Tbsp. minced shallots
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 3 cups chicken stock, heated


Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and saute until slightly softened, about 1 to 2 minutes, add the garlic and saute for an additional minute, add the rice and sauté until the rice begins to lightly brown.

Pour chicken stock over the rice mixture and stir until it begins to boil, turn down heat to low, cover and simmer until the rice has absorbed the stock, about 18 to 20 minutes, fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
