Parmesan Rice

Posted by Brette in Food

My family likes rice a lot. I almost always make brown rice in my steamer. We often eat it with just some butter on it or the sauce for whatever the main course is. I have a favorite, decadent rice dish that I make once in a while though, called Parmesan Rice. It’s incredibly simple but just fabulously delicious. I made it last night, but used some jasmine rice I had left in the cupboard.

Parmesan Rice (serves 4)
1 1/2 cups of rice
6 tbsp butter
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook rice according to package directions or however you usually make rice. I prefer to make this recipe with brown rice. Once the rice is cooked, put it in a square baking dish. Brown the butter and spoon over the rice. Sprinkle the cheese on top and cover the dish with foil. Allow it to sit for several minutes, until the cheese melts.

The brown butter gives this dish a wonderful nutty flavor and the cheese – well, cheese makes almost everything better! This dish can be made in advance and then reheated in the microwave. It also works well for large family gatherings – just double or triple the recipe. I almost always double this recipe when cooking for the 4 of us because we just love it so much.
