Brazilian-Style Rice

A perfect accompaniment to pinto beans cooked with bay leaves, onion, garlic, and a little salt and pepper, or just plain good on its own!

Brazilian-Style Rice

3 scoops rice (about 2 1/4 cups)
2 T oil
1 T dehydrated onion, or 1/2 fresh onion, chopped
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Optional: garlic, minced or granulated

Warm oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add remaining ingredients. Cook until fragrant and coated in oil, about 3 minutes. A few pieces might start to brown.

You can either cook this in a rice cooker (cook as normal, with a little extra water) or in the skillet.
