I found this recipe at and have made it a few times. It is a very elegant dish in presentation and combines two side dishes into one. Give it a try.

I've made this dozens of times (love it) and even served it to a large group, it was a hit! Sometimes you need to add some more broth, so keep an eye on it. I prefer to cook my onions a little longer than 2 minutes, so I cook them until they're soft, then add the garlic to cook for an additional 1 minute.

  3. Stir onion and garlic into the saucepan, and cook about 2 minutes, until tender.
  4. Stir in jasmine rice, and cook about 5 minutes.

  6. Season mixture with salt and pepper.
  7. Bring the mixture to a boil, cover, and cook 20 minutes, until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed.
