Brazilian Rice

Posted on October 25, 2007. Filed under: Reviewed, Side Dish |

1 white onion, very finely diced

2 cloves garlic, very finely diced

1 tbsp vegetable oil*

1 1/2 cups rice

3 cups boiling water

1/2 tsp white pepper

salt, to season

Saute the onion in the oil until just translucent. Add the garlic until fragrant then add the rice. Stir constantly and make sure each grain gets a small coating of oil.

Add the water and cover. Turn the heat all the way down and leave to stand for 15-20 minutes until rice is cooked and all water is absorbed.

Season with a good pinch of salt and white pepper and fluff with a fork. Perfection!

* – Normally for any pilaf I would use butter for the flavour, but this dish doesn’t need it. As I was researching recipes it seems there is a consensus that Brazilians like their rice very white and another type of oil would interfere with this.

REVIEW:  This rice was excellent, easy to make and full of flavor.   Everyone liked it.
