My Perfect White Rice
Use a rice cooker. Just kidding those things are expensive and can take up some serious space. So unless you eat rice every day use this method. You might wonder why I am telling you how to cook rice. Well, the directions on the bag usually result in pretty bad rice. I know… I cooked bad rice for years.
1 Cup of Long Grain White Rice
1 1/2 Cups water
Pinch of salt
Put rice, water, and a pinch of salt in medium size pot. Bring to a boil (uncovered), stir occasionally. When it comes to a boil put the lid on and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes, don’t stir or uncover your rice for any reason. Turn off burner, keep covered and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Then fluff rice with a fork.
Variation: If you want Cajun style rice add 2 bay leaves in with the water, rice and salt in the first step. Discard after it has cooked.
