Brazilian Rice

When our friends come to visit us and try the Brazilian rice, they immediately love it! The difference is because we spice the rice. As our Swedish teacher asked me how to prepare the Brazilian rice, I would like to share the recept with you.
Easy, no secrets.

¤ 1/4 onion sliced
¤ If you want you can use a small clove of garlic (sliced or squashed)
¤ Salt
¤ For 1 cup of rice, 2 cups of water
¤ Olive Oil

¤¤ Fry the onion (and the garlic) in olive oil until they get soft
¤¤ Include the rice and the salt
¤¤ Fry for 15 seconds mixing the rice
¤¤ Include the water and cover the pan
¤¤ Cook in a lower fire mixing 1 or 2 times until it be - almost - dry. Leave it for 15 minutes before to serve up a meal.

Enjoy it!

I will have to try that! I had a Turkish friend that put tomato (without the peel and seeds) in rice to flavor it. It just added a slight color and flavor, but you could not see any tomato pieces

She may have added olive oil and butter also-I can't remember. It was very good!
