  1. Preheat oven to 350°; butter a shallow 2-quart casserole.
  2. In a saucepan, bring the water and salt to a boil; stir in the rice.
  3. Return to a boil, cover, and decrease heat to low; simmer the rice for 35-40 minutes, or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
  4. In a skillet, melt the butter over medium heat; add in the onion and garlic; saute for about 5 minutes, or until tender.

  7. Transfer to the casserole; sprinkle with the sunflower seeds and paprika.
  8. Bake, uncovered, for 35 minutes, or until the casserole is set.
