Garlic and Ginger Rice (Com Gung Tuong)

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 8 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup)
This Garlic and Ginger Rice dish is flavored with the Asian Chicken Stock. The rice stands for 10 minutes so the grains separate and the cilantro flavor permeates the dish. The rice is rinsed three times to get rid of some starch so it won't be sticky when cooked.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked jasmine rice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups Asian Chicken Stock
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
