Basmati Rice - Healthy, Elegant and Flavorful!
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
6 ingredients
4 servings
This is a trial and error recipe that I perfected in order to get my boyfriend to stop eating minute rice and appreciate basmati, jasmine rice, etc. This one is for Basmati only though. **NOTE** As well, you can use either chicken broth or water. I prefer water, but my boyfriend likes it with the chicken broth. Use your preference! Also if you throw in pieces of broccoli (tiny pieces) or spinach instead it works just as well.
