fluffy rice...the cheaters way...

I love rice.
I HATE cooking rice.
I cheat.
Treat it like pasta.
I'm serious.
Boil water, add as much rice as you want to cook. Cook until al dente.
Drain. Done.
No measuring.
No rice & water bubbling and boiling all over your cook top.
You could even cook it in chicken stock and add whatever seasonings you prefer (green onions, cumin. Or steep it in milk with a little cinnamon sugar...yum!)
(This works for the real stuff...not the instant rice from a box)

I'm going to try it! Does this mean more recipe posts are going to start coming?!?!

Wow - I had never thought of that! Does the rice go through the strainer holes?

We use a rice cooker - dump in rice, dump in water, & push the button. Done.
