DIRECTIONS

  • In a small saucepan saute the sliced garlic in the olive oil on low heat until garlic is crispy and light golden brown.
  • Drain garlic on paper towels and reserve 1-1/2 tablespoons of the garlicky olive oil.
  • In a small skillet, toast pumpkin seeds lightly (they'll begin popping all over the place), then finely mince them.
  • Set aside.
  • Transfer the 1-1/2 tablespoons of reserved olive oil to a large saucepan and saute the onion and rice together for about 3 minutes.
  • Add water and salt, bring to a boil then lower heat, cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes or until done and liquid is absorbed.
  • Serve with minced toasted pumpkin seeds and garlic chips sprinkled on top; provide hot sauce for sprinkling also.
