Creamy Parmesan Rice

4 tablespoons butter

2-3 cloves garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)

1 cup uncooked white rice

1 cup water

1 cup milk*

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/2 teaspoon parsley (optional)

Splash of milk, if desired


Sauté garlic in butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat until fragrant (about 3-4 minutes). Add rice and stir to coat in butter. 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 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. Enjoy!
