  • Chop the scallions and parsley leaves. Afterwards, take the garlic cloves and mince them well. Place the parsley and scallions in a separate dish from the garlic. 

  • Cut the parmesan in half. Hold the cheese firmly in one hand and use the largest holes on the grater to shred it into thin, long strips. Place it in a small dish. 

  • Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a medium-sized saucepan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic to the pan and cook for an additional 4 minutes. 

  • Combine one cup of rice with the melted butter. Mix everything well. Then add the vegetable broth, water, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil.

  • Once boiling, place a lid on the saucepan and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. After removing the lid, sprinkle shredded Parmesan cheese, chopped scallions, and parsley on top. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.

  • Take the pan off the heat and let it cool for 5 minutes. Serve the rice in a lovely bowl and top the dish with the remaining parsley or Parmesan cheese.



  • If you want to try a different type of rice other than white rice, there are many alternatives that offer a range of flavors, textures, and health benefits. One good option is brown rice, which is healthier than white rice because it has minimal processing and retains its nutrient-rich outer layer. It has a distinctive nutty flavor and a firm texture.


Bon Appetit!
