Recipe: Garlicky Rice

We don't subscribe to Cooking Light;  however, my mother-in-law gets the magazine and passed the July 2013 issue to us.  We made the Spiced Chicken Thighs with Garlicky Rice recipe (p.58), and while the chicken was a bit bland, the rice was quite good!  

I usually make rice in a rice cooker, but here's their recipe for making it on the stove.
  • Melt 1 tbsp butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat
  • Add 1 tbsp minced fresh garlic; saute for 1 minute.
  • Add 1 cup of uncooked basmati rice;  cook 30 seconds stirring constantly.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of water and 3/8 teaspoon of salt;  bring to a boil.
  • Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 12 minutes or until the rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Fluff rice.
  • Stir in parsley and black pepper.
