  • 4 tablespoons (2oz. | 60g) butter, divided
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked white rice, long gran, Basmati or Jasmine
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth, or vegetable stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley, plus extra to garnish


  • Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add garlic and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Stir in rice to coat with the garlic butter.
  • Add broth, dried parsley, salt and pepper. Stir well and bring to a boil.
  • Cover with lid and reduce heat to low so the liquid is simmering very gently. Cook until all liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • Uncover and stir through fresh parsley.
  • Remove from heat, cover with lid and let stand 5-10 minutes, until soft.
  • Fluff rice with a fork. Stir through remaining butter and season with a little extra salt, pepper and dried parsley.
  • Garnish with some fresh chopped parsley.
