Tucscan Rice

Recipe from Maya cooking class.

1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 stalk green onion, slicked
1 pc. green bell pepper, brunois (smaller than diced)
1 piece zucchini, brunois
2 cups rice
2 cups stock or water (adjust according to how rice is normally cooked)
pinch of thyme
piece of bay leaf
dash of salt
dash of white pepper

Heat oil in a casserole. Saute garlic, green onion, zucchini and green bell pepper. Add rice, stir everything gently and evenly. Make sure all rice grains are coated with oil. Add water. Mix again. Cook further as in cooking traditional rice when water boils, add the spices. Stir gently. Reduce heat. Right after cooking remove from heat and immerse pot in cold water. Fluff rice.

Note: in class, after adding stock/water and herbs to the rice and boiling it for a while, we transferred the mixture to the rice cooker and let it cook there.
