What a simple but flavorful way to make rice. The rice was creamy with a lovely garlic flavor and smelled wonderful. I think I might try to reduce the olive oil by 1 Tablespoon next time just to reduce the fat content of the finished product. I did find that I had to add water on several occasions, despite having reduced my stove temperature, in order for the rice to finish cooking. Thank you for posting your recipe!

  3. In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  4. Add the rice and stir for about 1 minute to coat all grains.
  5. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute.

  7. Stir often until the liquid is absorbed.
  8. Add another 1/2-cup of the broth and repeat the process.
