Lavender adds a perfume taste and scent to rice. Use a delicate grain like Jasmine for this infusion. Serve on a special occasion like Mother’s Day, and if you can find lavender flowers, they make a great presentation on the platter.
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup jasmine rice, rinsed and drained
- 2 tsp lavender, chopped
- Bring the water to a boil in a sturdy sauce pan. Add a pinch of salt, the lavender, and the rice.
- Turn the heat down to a simmer, cover with a tight lid and cook for 30 minutes.
- When the rice is done, fluff with a fork, and add to your favorite entrée.
