Yummy, easy, addictive side dish that complements a wide variety of Asian and Fusion dishes! I use a microplane to grate my ginger, and a spoon's edge to easily [& not wastefully] peel it.
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons canola oil or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons butter
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons fresh ginger, finely grated
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup jasmine rice
- 1 cup water or 1 cup stock
- Rinse rice with water until water runs clear.
- Heat butter or oil in pan over medium to low heat. Saute garlic, ginger & salt for about a minute at most or until fragrant. Add rice and stir well.
- Add liquid. Bring to a boil.
- Cover, reduce heat, simmer about 15 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice tender.
We loved this! Even my two kids who hate rice gobbled it up & have requested it again. I used chicken soup base, so didn't add the salt.
YUM-O! I used chicken broth with this recipe and added 2 more garlic cloves. Threw everything in the rice cooker and it was a success!
I made a double recipe for a small dinner gathering, and served with edemame and vegetable potstickers. YUM! Next time, I will buy a jar of minced ginger to save some time, as a double recipe took an entire ginger root. Thanks, I will be making this again!
