Recipe Notes

This easy recipe calls for water. To infuse your rice with more flavor, you can replace the water with vegetable or chicken broth.
You can also add a dash of salt for a little more flavor.
You can easily double or triple this recipe. However, you do not need to adjust the cooking times. I know, it sounds crazy, but don’t increase the cooking time, or your rice will not turn out well.
I used a six-quart pot. However, none of the steps should change if your pot is smaller or bigger than mine.
I do not suggest using Minute Rice for this recipe. I used long grain white rice, which cooks up beautifully.
