Sinangag, or Filipino Garlic Rice is the perfect way to use leftover rice, and I'm going to show you the ingredients and techniques to make this classic dish better. With fluffy grains of rice infused with garlicky oil, it's accented by loads of caramelized garlic.
In a large frying pan, add the olive oil and garlic and heat over medium-high heat, stirring regularly to ensure even browning. Fry the garlic until most of the sizzling subsides and the garlic is a golden brown color.
Remove half of the garlic from the pan, leaving the oil behind.
Add the rice and toss to coat evenly with the oil and garlic.
Stir-fry the rice until it's heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve the Sinangag hot and garnish with the reserved garlic. You can also top with some scallions for color.
