"Rice is the best, the most nutritive and unquestionably the most widespread staple in the world." -Auguste Escoffier, 19th century French chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

The chili oil and scallions complement this rice dish and make it a perfect side dish for almost any Asian recipe. Try this with seared salmon and Ponzu Sauce or Seared Tuna Steak with Sake-Wasabi Sauce.

Chili oil varies in its spiciness and you might want to start with one or two teaspoons of oil to gauge the heat and adjust to your liking. You can also make this dish without the chili oil using red pepper flakes and adding them to the water with the salt. Use a bit of sesame or olive oil at the end of the recipe as you would with the chili oil.


Jasmine Rice with Chili Oil and Scallions

Servings: 2 | Serving size: 1/2 cup rice

Cooking time: 45 minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied and keeps well, refrigerated. For 3-4 days.

2 cups water
1/8 tsp. salt
1/2 cup jasmine or long grain white rice
3 tsp. chili oil
2 large green onions (thinly sliced crosswise)

Jasmine Rice with Chili Oil and Scallions

In a medium sauce pan, heat the water and salt.

When the water boils, stir in the rice.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for about 20 to 25 minutes.

Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.

When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and add the chili oil and green onions.

Fold the oil and onions into the rice gently, then let the rice stand, covered, for 3 to 5 minutes before serving.
