Ingredients

  • 4

    tablespoons butter

  • 2-3

    cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)

  • 1

    cup uncooked white rice

  • 1

    cup water

  • 1

    cup milk*

  • ½

    teaspoon salt

  • cup parmesan cheese

  • ½

    teaspoon parsley (optional)

  • Splash of milk, if desired

Directions

Sauté garlic in butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat until fragrant (about 3-4 minutes). Add rice and stir to coat in butter. Add water, milk and salt then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low (or maybe a little higher depending on your stove - you want to keep it at a slight simmer), cover and cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Don’t mess around with your rice too much – just stir occasionally to make sure it’s not sticking to the bottom. Stir in parmesan cheese and parsley. If you would like yours to be creamier, add a splash of milk. Taste for salt and add more if necessary. Cover, turn off heat and let rest for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
