Cook rice using your preferred method. Set aside for about an hour to remove the moisture.
Cut half of your garlic cloves into thin white round slices. Mince the remaining half.
Remove parsley leaves from stems and mince.
Add olive oil to the pan and heat on medium high. Fry garlic slices until golden brown. Don't add garlic slices when the oil's hot or they'll burn. Rather, let the garlic and oil heat together.
Add minced garlic and heat until golden brown.
Add butter, swirling it around so it coats the pan. Then, add warm steamed rice.
Break up the rice to separate it. Once it's coated in garlic, add soy sauce.
Season with salt and pepper. Taste to make sure it's seasoned to your liking.
Add the chopped parsley and mix.
Serve by putting the rice in a rice bowl, pressing to make sure it's packed. Invert the bowl and serve in a domed shape.
