Garlicky Brown Rice

Recipe by karen

I tried this recipe a few years ago and remember that I really liked it. I'm not so good at tends to stick to the pot...but this one was easy and tasty.

We always eat brown rice (a bit boring), so I was looking for a recipe to jazz it up for a change. This was delicious! I used brown basmati and halved the rice to 1c, still used about five cloves of garlic, and threw in some red pepper to cook with the rice. I cook brown rice with 2 (scant) cups fluid to 1 cup rice, which always results in perfectly cooked rice. This recipe, as written, calls for too much fluid. If you're having trouble with wet rice, decrease the fluid (water/broth) to just under 2 cups for each cup of rice.
