  • 1 cup long or medium grain rice
  • 1.5 Cups Chicken Broth/Stock

  • 2 medium carrots cut into 1/4" cubes or baguettes
  • 1-2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce

  1. Rinse rice until the water runs clear. Bring broth or meat stock to a boil. Season with salt. Add rice, cover with lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for about 15 minutes on low heat without removing the lid. Allow the water to completely evaporate. Leave the lid on for another 10 minutes after done cooking.

  3. When the carrots are al dente, turn up the heat to high and transfer the rice in to the pan with the carrots and onion.
  4. While on high heat, stir the rice and soy sauce and let it "fry" in the pan for about 3-5 minutes.
