  • 1 cup rice, uncooked

  • One 14-ounce can chicken broth 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 

  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes, crused

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

  • Freshly ground black pepper 



  • In a medium saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the crushed red pepper and rice, and stir well to coat rice with oil. Cook for a minute or two until rice starts to look translucent, then add the chicken broth and bring to a boil.

  • Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes or until all broth is absorbed. Remove the lid and fluff the rice with a fork. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and black pepper. Cover just until the cheese melts, then serve.
