Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add rice and toast for 30 seconds until lightly browned. Add broth and simmer on low for 30-40 minutes, or until rice is cooked but not mushy.
Stir in nutritional yeast flakes, garlic powder, and salt.
If using pine nuts heat a pan on medium heat and allow pine nuts to toast until lightly browned.
Serve rice with pine nuts on top. Enjoy.
