Garlic Brown Rice


Last Sunday, we thought of having a roast duck. I'm not skillful enough to process a duck from scratch, so the only option is to buy a half of ready made roasted duck from the nearby wet market. Then it saved all the cooking time. But then, if to serve the duck with white rice, it sounded a bit boring. So, I cook a pot of garlic brown rice to enhance the rice flavor. After all, this was our easy peasy Sunday meal.

Garlic Brown Rice
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 3/4 cups of brown rice, rinsed and drain
1 bulb of garlic, peeled and chopped
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
600ml of water
1/2 tsp of salt

Steps:
1. Heat oil in a wok, sauté garlic till golden yellow.
2. Add rice to stir-fry for 3 minutes. Off the fire.
3. Transfer the rice to rice cooker pot.
4. Pour in water and cook under "brown rice" program using my micro-computer rice cooker.

I have never eaten garlic brown rice before but I am sure it goes really well with roast duck or chicken.
