Mircowave Rice

I must admit that for a long time every time I tried to cook rice for my family I failed. Now this was really a huge issue for me. I was a home ec. teacher for crying out loud and I could not consistently make rice. Ridiculous! I asked a good friend of mine Shannon. She is an amazing woman that is an amazing cook. She told me to buy a rice cooker. Which I did, but I also found that you don’t need a rice cooker to make amazing rice. This recipe is the first that I found that I could consistently make and have good non-crunch rice every time.

Microwave Rice
Follow the directions on the package of rice for the rice to water ratio. But here is exactly what I do:

For 8 servings:
2 cups rice
4 ¼ cups water

Place in a large microwave safe bowl. (I use a very large Pyrex bowl) cover tightly with plastic wrap. Microwave for 16 minutes on high. Let rice sit in microwave for 5 minutes. Remove and fluff.

*you can add seasoning to the rice prior to cooking for example I often add some “better than bouillon”, garlic, and salt. But you can add anything that you would like.

I love cooking things that can go from cooking, to the table, to the fridge all in the same bowl.
