Creamy Parmesan Rice


4 tablespoons butter
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup uncooked white rice
1 cup water
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon parsley (optional)
Splash of milk, if desired


Sauté garlic and rice in butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat until garlic is fragrant (about 3-4 minutes).
Add water, milk and salt then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low (or maybe a little higher depending on your stove – you
want to keep it at a slight simmer), cover and cook for 20 minutes or until rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Don’t mess
around with your rice too much – just stir occasionally with a fork to make sure it’s not sticking to the bottom.
Stir in parmesan cheese and parsley. If you would like yours to be creamier, add a splash of milk. Taste for salt and add
more if necessary. Cover, turn off heat and let rest for 5 minutes.
