Lightly mist the sliced garlic with olive oil. Bake in a 350° F preheated oven until crispy. Set aside.
In a large sauté pan over medium heat, warm two tablespoons of olive oil. Sauté two cloves of minced garlic and uncooked rice in the olive oil for 30 seconds, or until light brown in color. Add the salt. Add four cups of water, cover pan, and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes or until rice becomes dry.
Steam broccoli for three minutes. Sauté the remaining two cloves of minced garlic and steamed broccoli in two tablespoons of olive oil until garlic is light brown. Mix the broccoli and rice together. Garnish with baked garlic.
