I love regular white rice, but sometimes it gets boring.  This rice dish is not only delicious, but it also pairs well with many other dishes.  I love the crunchy texture of the fried garlic and I am sure you will too.


  • 1 cup Jasmine rice
  • 1 ¾ cup cold water
  • 2 tsp. chicken bouillon
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ medium yellow onion, diced
  • Pepper to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. cooking oil
  • Fried garlic *
  • Chopped chives (optional garnish)


  1. Rinse the rice with warm water, drain and place rice in a saucepot.
  2. Heat a skillet to med-high heat.  Add the onions, cook for 1 minute.  Add the garlic, and cook for 2 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
  3. Place the onion and garlic mixture in the saucepot with the rice.  Add 1 ¾ cup cold water, chicken bouillon, and pepper. Stir to combine.
  4. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat to low and simmer 20 minutes.  Fluff with fork, garnish with fried garlic and chopped chives, then serve.


*I love fried garlic and found a jar of it at the local Asian market.  If you can’t find it. It’s easy to make, just be careful not to burn.  Peel and chop up garlic cloves.  Fry in olive oil stirring often.  Pull when the garlic is browned.  You can also leave it out, but I love the texture this brings to the dish.
