When we started growing our garden, we weren’t really sure what to expect. People have had either really good luck, or really terrible luck with gardens here in Hawaii. I am thankful to say that we are erring on the side of fortunate.
This photo was taken last week and these plants are already leaps and bounds larger. It’s kind of incredible. That said, I’m finding fun ways to incorporate fresh herbs into our meals.
Last night I paired Garlic Basil Rice with Coconut Chicken (recipe coming next week) and it was easy AND delicious. Win-Win.
You will need:
1 cup cooked brown rice
1 clove fresh garlic
1 tablespoon oil
1. Heat a medium saucepan with oil and add the fresh clove of garlic, crushed.
2. When oil is hot, add the rice, stir and let it heat up.
3. When rice is hot, mix in the chopped basil and turn off the heat. Basil will wilt with the heat without burning off the flavor.
