      Update: It is not often that I would come back to re-rate a recipe...but this one is so worth it. I have used this with fresh garlic and dried garlic flakes. I find that if you add the garlic half way through the cooking cycle, the garlic is more pronounced. I use butter instead of oil...add the rice and stir for one minute until well coated....I then add a bit of chicken stock to the water and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Half way through, I add the garlic. I used about 1 - 1-1/2 tsp dried garlic flakes. Excellent

      Delicious way to perk up the family dinner. Love the garlic and this will compliment almost anything. My salmon was sure happy with it. I always cook rice as V suggested and it always comes out perfect. Thanks Reds :D

      This is a great rice dish and it was so easy to make. I followed the suggestion of Chef V and let the rice sit 5 minutes off the burner and it worked wonderfully. It was very fluffy and I love the flavor of the garlic in this. I will make this again. Thanks for sharing!
