Sesame Garlic Basmati Rice

Total Time30 mins
Servings: 4


  • 1/2 tsp butter
  • 1 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 3/4 cup uncooked basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • Sea salt and white pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  • Heat the butter and sesame oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute. Add the rice and cook, stirring often so the rice doesn't stick to the pan, for 3-4 minutes. Add the chicken broth and season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium low. Cover and let cook for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the rice from the burner without removing the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork. Sprinkle with chopped green onions and toasted sesame seeds and serve. Enjoy.
