Cooking Perfect Rice


Cooking Perfect Rice

If you can cook a pot of rice, you'll never starve. Fortunately rice is one of the easiest things to cook, and the basis of many a vegetarian meal.

Helpful Hints For Perfect Rice:

Yield: 4 cups cooked, or 4 - 6 servings

1. We use long grain basmati rice, and these proportions work for that. Different types of rice will need more or less water. Shorter grains usually need a bit less, longer grains more.

2. For brown rice, soak it for 1 - 4 hours, discard the soaking water, and increase the cooking time to 45 minutes. You may need a little more water.

3. Short grain rice is sweeter and stickier. Use slightly less water. If your rice is too sticky and soft, use less water next time, or switch to a long grain variety

4. If your rice is undercooked, but all the water is gone, add a few tablespoons more water, cover, and simmer for 5 - 10 more minutes.

To Cook Rice, You'll Need:

  • 1 cup rice
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 2 c. water for brown rice
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1 sturdy 2 quart pot with a tight fitting lid, essential for even cooking


  1. If using brown rice, set aside to soak for 1 - 4 hours
  2. Rinse the rice in a colander until the rinse water is clear
  3. Drain completely and place in the pot with the water, salt and oil
  4. Cover with tight fitting lid and bring to a boil
  5. Turn burner to very low or simmer and cook for 1- 15 minutes
  6. For brown rice: turn burner to very low or simmer and cook for 40 - 45 minutes
  7. Remove from heat and let sit 5 minutes with lid on
  8. Fluff gently with a fork and serve
