My Brazilian neighbor used to make big batches of this and share with me, which I LOVED ... then she moved away and I had to figure it out for myself. I guess it's that whole teach a woman to fish thing :-) This recipe is not fussy about amounts other than rice to liquid ratio so feel free to adjust amounts up or down according to taste - this is the way that I like it! —aargersi
Warm the chicken broth. Saute the garlic and rice in the butter over medium-high heat for 3-4 minutes until it begins to smell delicious and toasty. Add the broth. Bring it to a boil, add the corn and peas and cover. Set the timer for half the cook time on the rice (usually 10 minutes)
When the timer beeps, stir the raisins, olives and hearts of palm into the rice. Taste the liquid and adjust the salt if needed. Cover and finish cooking the rice (usually 10 more minutes)
When the rice is done, stir in the parsley and green onion, and cover for 2-3 more mintes, then serve!
