If you are looking for a light, flavorful side dish for your entree, you’ve come to the right place. I love to serve this rice along with Parmesan Broiled Tilapia. The tilapia recipe will follow in a few days. In the meantime, prepare this Parmesan Jasmine Rice to go along with your favorite chicken or seafood recipe.
*Just a side note, I double this recipe so our family of 5 has some leftovers.
4 t butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 c uncooked white jasmine rice
2 c water
1/2 t salt
1 t dried basil
1/2 t dried thyme
4 T parmesan, freshly grated
1. Melt butter in small saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic, saute 1 minute. Add the rice and stir well. Add water and salt then bring to a boil. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.
2. Gently stir in the basil and thyme, then sprinkle with the parmesan cheese.
Serves about 3-4.
