Quick and Easy Brown Basmati Lemon Rice

I’m posting this more so that I have something to pin on my Pinterest board! I need a good virtual place to keep this recipe.


1 cup uncooked brown Basmati rice (or really, any rice you prefer, but I like the brown Basmati from Trader Joe’s)

2 lemons

4 tablespoons of butter, margarine or olive oil (what you prefer)

1 teaspoon of minced garlic (I cheat and use the store bought stuff)

Salt and Pepper (I am a huge fan of Trader Joe’s Smoked Sea Salt and Flower Pepper)

Precook your rice in a rice cooker, or the old fashioned way if you don’t have a rice cooker (but seriously, spring for a rice cooker. Well worth the money). In a skillet, melt half your butter or oil and sautee your garlic. Add the cooked rice and stir a bit. Add the rest of your butter or oil, salt and pepper, and the juice from your lemons. Stir well. Serve. YUM!
