Basil-infused Balsamic Rice Delight: A Mediterranean Marvel

Hey food enthusiasts!

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of perfectly cooked rice? But what if I told you there's a way to elevate that humble bowl into a Mediterranean adventure? Today, I'm sharing a recipe that's close to my heart – a delightful blend of fresh basil and the rich notes of balsamic. Thanks to the exceptional ingredients from PetitsTré, this dish truly comes to life. Ready to embark on this flavourful journey? Let's get started!


  • 1 cup of premium long-grain rice
  • 2 tbsp of PetitsTrésors' exceptional olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of quality balsamic vinegar
  • A handful of fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • Salt, to taste
  • A dash of black pepper


  1. Start by rinsing the rice thoroughly under cold water until the water runs clear. This ensures that our rice is non-sticky and fluffy.
  2. In a deep saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium flame. Once it’s warm, add the rice, stirring constantly, until it's lightly toasted.
  3. Pour in 2 cups of water, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Mix well.
  4. Allow the mixture to come to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and let it simmer for about 15-18 minutes, or until the rice is cooked through.
  5. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork. Now, here's where the magic happens – fold in that fragrant, chopped basil, and let the aroma encapsulate your senses.
  6. Serve warm and enjoy every delightful bite!
