This cheesy and perfectly spiced rice is an excellent side-dish choice to accompany a slightly higher-fat main dish for those with IBS and/or GERD. For everyone else, it’s simply a delicious side-dish to pair with your favorite main entrees.
Herbed Parmesan Rice
A cheesy and flavorful yet low-fat dish to pair with your favorite main dish.
Servings: 4 servings
- 1/2 Tbsp. garlic-infused olive oil
- 1 cup jasmine rice (uncooked)
- 2 cups vegetable broth (for IBS/GERD, check out my recipe for homemade IBS & GERD safe vegetable broth here)
- 1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
- 1+1/2 Tbsp. fresh chives (finely chopped)
- 1/4-1/2 tsp. salt (based on your salt-level preference)
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (freshly grated)
- Heat the oil in the bottom of a medium-sized saucepan until hot, then add the rice and brown (allow to cook for ~5 minutes, while stirring occasionally).
- Add the broth, Italian seasoning, chives and salt to the pan. Bring the mixture to a boil then immediately cover, reduce heat to simmer and continue to cook for ~15 minutes, until the water is absorbed and rice is tender.
- Stir in the Parmesan cheese (and additional salt to taste, if desired) and serve.
