Microwave Rice

August 13, 2020

This isn’t really a recipe so much as it’s a technique.

This is the best way to cook white rice in my book.  Even though I have a rice cooker and have cooked rice on the stove top before, this is far better than either.

This is from Serious Eats:

place 2 cups of white rice ( my favorite is basmati) in microwaveable bowl

add 1 cup of chicken stock or broth and 1 cup of water

stir

cover bowl with clean cloth

place in microwave

cook on high for 5 minutes

when done, reprogram to cook 15 minutes at 50% power

remove bowl from microwave (it’s hot)

let rest for 5 minutes

remove cloth and stir

yum!!

 

rice, broth/water

add liquid to rice and stir:

cover with clean cloth:

microwave:

let sit for 5 minutes:

voila!!! perfectly cooked rice
