Shiso Garlic Rice with Basil
Here is the fourth and final dish I made using the gift of basil I received last week. It looks like an innocent little rice dish. But don’t be fooled, this is not for the faint of heart.
This rice dish has the strong tastes of shiso, garlic, and basil. If you like all three of these ingredients, great – you’ll probably enjoy it. If you aren’t a fan of one or more of these ingredients, consider trying the milder edamame rice recipe.
If you’re still with me, here we go…
2 cups cooked brown rice
1 to 2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp oil
2 to 3 tsp shiso furikake
6 to 8 leaves sweet basil, chopped
Fry up the minced garlic in the oil until light brown.
Add in the cooked brown rice and shiso furikake.
After mixing for a couple minutes, turn off the heat then add in the chopped sweet basil.
Mix one last time, letting the basil slightly wilt down.
