  • 1 ½ cups uncooked basmati rice
  • 2 ½ cups low sodium chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon garlic cloves chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup Chopped green onions
  • Salt to taste


  • Rinse the rice until the water runs clear, drain in a colander and set aside.
  • Place a pan on medium heat, add olive oil and leave until hot. Add chopped garlic and sauté until soft, then add butter and swirl until melted
  • Add the washed rice and toast the rice for 2 minutes, stirring constantly so it doesn’t stick to the pan.
  • Pour vegetable broth or broth into the rice and mix to combine. Add salt to taste and place the lid on the pan and continue to cook on low heat for about 15 minutes. Check the rice for doneness, don’t be in a haste to add water is the rice is dry at this point, taste it and check if it is soft enough for you.
  • After 15 minutes, add chopped green onions to the rice, stir to combine and continue to cook for another 5 minutes. Turn off the heat (there shouldn’t be any water left in the rice at this point) and leave the rice to stand for at least 5 minutes before serving. Fluff up the rice with a fork and serve as desired.
