Brimming with flavor, this is a must try! I either serve it as a stand alone side or under Cuban Black beans


  1. Saute garlic cloves in hot oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat 2-3.
  2. Add rice, and saute 1 minute.
  3. Stir in 4 cups water and salt; bring to a boil.
  4. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes. Do not uncover rice until time is up.
  5. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes.
  6. Fluff with fork.

Simple and delicious! Just as easy as plain rice but a terrific flavor punch from the garlic. Made as directed with white rice and will try with brown as well. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
