Directions

  1. Rinse the rice in a fine-mesh strainer under cold running water until the water runs clear. Drain. In a saucepan, mix the water, rice, garlic paste, olive oil, salt and cumin. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook uncovered until almost all the water is absorbed, 8 to 10 min. Stir with a fork, cover, reduce the heat to low and cook another 6 to 8 min. until rice is tender.

  2. Remove rice from the heat and fluff with a fork. Toss with remaining ingredients. Serve warm or at room temperature.
