Angela Brassinga often makes this dish with leftover cooked rice. "I love to serve it with grilled chicken," she says. Prep and Cook Time: 35 minutes. Notes: To make the dish with leftover rice, add rice to cooked garlic in step 1. Omit broth. Add peas and stir until hot.

How to Make It

Step 1

Put olive oil and butter in a 10-in. frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook until butter melts. Add garlic and salt and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring, until rice is opaque. Add broth, stir, and turn heat to high. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer undisturbed while rice absorbs liquid, about 15 minutes (then remove cover to check).

Step 2

Remove cover, quickly add peas (leave peas on top, do not stir), and return cover. Take off heat and let sit 5 minutes. Remove cover, add parsley, and fluff with a fork. Serve hot, sprinkled with pepper to taste.

Step 3

I thought this had good taste, but I wouldn't consider it a great side dish as is - It actually overpowered my main dish. Next time, I'll only add 2 cloves of garlic instead of 3.
