For the not-so-brown-rice-lover, this recipe makes it taste better. I could imagine savoring this with fillet Mignon on the side, or perhaps grilled ahi tuna. Bummer, I am making myself hungrier.
Heat oil over medium heat in a heavy skillet or a non-stick pan.
When oil is ready (splatters with a mist of water), sauté in garlic until lightly browned.
Add in rice. Continue sautéing for 5 minutes, or until most of the moisture is evaporated. Mix in smoked paprika, ground coriander seeds and salt and pepper to taste. Continue sautéing for 2 more minutes. This will be enough to better incorporate all the spices with the rice.
Turn off heat, keeping the pan on the warm stove, adding in chopped fresh parsley. Let parsley turn its color to brilliant green (about 3 minutes), then remove pan from hot stove.
Serve rice warm. Best served as a side dish.
Boy, I ate this all by itself and nothing more!
And psssttt…, don’t you know that brown rice is so high in fiber it makes you go twice a day? Great for losing weight, eh. This recipe make your brown rice taste better too!
