You do not need to be afraid of cooking rice. Cooking rice from scratch is easy and much better tasting than instant rice.
If you like rice, buying an inexpensive ($20-30) rice cooker may be the best option. We have one at home and it makes an effort-less and fluffy rice every time.
- 1 cup white rice rinsed
- 2 cups Water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon Butter
- 1/2 cup corn kernels or any other vegetable
- 1/4 Onion
In a saucepan with a good fitting lid bring water and salt to a boil.
Add rice, butter, onion and corn. Stir.
Cover and reduce heat to medium low. You will know that your temperature is correct if a little steam is visible leaking from the lid. A lot of steam means your heat is too high.
Cook for 20 minutes. Do not stir and do not lift the lid. Remove from heat and fluff with fork. Serve!
