  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium to large leek cleaned and sliced - white and light green sections only
  • 2 garlic cloves chopped finely
  • 2 whole cloves
  • 3 cups red rice
  • ½ teaspoon salt optional
  • ½ tablespoon Herbes de Provence
  • 5 1/4 cups water


  • In a heavy bottom pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add leek, garlic, cloves and cook for about 8 minutes. Add rice, salt and herbes de provence, and mix well. Pan-fry rice for about 2 - 3 minutes.
  • Add water and stir to mix. Do not over stir. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Once the water has almost evaporated, reduce heat to low, cover and continue to cook until rice is fluffy and fully cooked. (test with a fork and not a spoon)


Very aromatic rice. Slight smokey taste
Cooking time will vary depending on brand of rice.
