How To Make The Best Rice, Every time

  1. Just use 1 part rice, to 1 1/2 parts water. So if you’re cooking a cup of rice, use 1 1/2 cups water.
  2. Rinse your rice and add it a medium saucepan with the water and a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Bring the water to a simmer, and then put a top on the pot and reduce to low heat.
  4. Steam rice for 8 minutes, or until rice is tender and absorbed all the water.
  5. Fluff with a fork and serve!
