What You'll Need

  • 1 cup Basmati rice
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups homemade gluten-free vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon gluten-free soy sauce
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds

How to Make It

  1. Toast Basmati rice in 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet or saucepan until it is golden brown. Add vegetable broth and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 45 minutes. Rice should be tender and all liquid absorbed. When fully cooked, Basmati rice will have a nice texture and not be mushy.
  2. Stir in soy sauce, parsley and almonds. Cover and let rice steam over low heat until parsley is just heated through.
