This baked rice dish is so full of flavour you may never go back to eating plain rice again! If you prefer a stronger garlic flavour, you can omit the french onion soup mix. Finish off with parsley, chives or green shallots sprinkled on top. We also like to drizzle with a little extra melted butter before serving.
* 300g (1 1/2 cups) long-grain white rice
* 4 garlic cloves, crushed
* 35g packet salt-reduced French onion soup mix
* 750ml (3 cups) salt-reduced beef stock
* 80g butter, chopped
* 2 tbsp chopped fresh continental parsley
