Ingredients

  • 1 cup white rice (long, medium, or short grain; regular or parboiled)
  • 1½ to 2½ cups water or broth
  • 1 teaspoon butter, rice bran oil, or olive oil
  • ½ to ¾ teaspoon salt to taste

Directions

• 1. If using imported rice, rinse the rice carefully several times and remove any small stones or impurities. This step is unnecessary for U.S.-grown rice.

• 2. Combine the rice with 2 cups water for long grain regular rice, 1¾ cups water for short or medium grain regular rice or 2½ cups water for parboiled rice with the butter and salt in a heavy 2-quart saucepan with lid.

• 3. Bring the rice mixture to a boil over high heat; reduce heat, cover, and cook 15 to 18 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed. Fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
