- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup white rice, rinsed
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1/4 cup slightly crushed peanuts
- 2 scallions, chopped
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and rice and saute 4 minutes, stirring, so that the rice toasts and the garlic cooks. Add the chicken broth to the rice mixture, bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit covered another 5 minutes. Stir in the peanuts, scallions, and salt and pepper, to taste. Rice can be made 1 day ahead, then warmed and combined with other ingredients before serving.
*Next time I make this rice, I will reduce the chicken broth to 1 1/2 cups. I will also try cashews instead of peanuts and will double the amount.
Destrie: not good
