  • 1 Cup uncooked rice

Have electric burner on MEDIUM - gas burner on MEDIUM TO LOW FLAME - Do not let burn.

Place olive oil in nonstick skillet - just til melted - add garlic - saute for 2 minutes tossing with wooden spoon - add uncooked rice tossing with wooden spoon - saute 2 minutes stirring constantly.

Then, add vinegar and saute 2 minutes.
