Glam up simple white rice with a bit of onion, garlic, and a bay leaf for a flavor that will make your tastebuds sing. Add a splash of color with your vegetable (or vegetables!) of choice – bell pepper, carrot, asparagus, etc.



Simple Rice

  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 2 tablespoons onion, minced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons red bell pepper, small dice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • olive oil
  • kosher salt


  1. Heat a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once the saucepan is warmed, but not completely hot, add enough olive oil to coat the bottom.
  2. Add the butter and chopped onion.
  3. Saute the onion over medium heat just until it begins to turn translucent.
  4. Add the garlic and saute another minute or two until fragrant.
  5. Add the rice and stir to coat the grains with the oil mixture in the saucepan.
  6. Add the bell pepper. Stir to combine.
  7. Add the water and stir once more. Cover the saucepan.
  8. Simmer for 15-18 minutes until all the water has been absorbed.
  9. Allow rice to stand for several minutes to absorb remaining moisture in the saucepan.
  10. Fluff and serve.
