Parmesan Jasmine Rice

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.
