  • 5 sprigs flat-leaf parsley

  • ¼ white onion

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 (8 ounce) package sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped

  1. Combine hot water and rice in a bowl and soak for 15 minutes. Rinse until water runs clear and drain very well.

  2. Heat oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add rice and cook, stirring constantly, until translucent, about 5 minutes.
