Rice is a staple food for almost half the world's population; it is the largest food crop in the world. Nevertheless, many people have trouble cooking rice without burning it and having it stick to the bottom of the pot, or having it absorb so much water that it turns into mush. Here is a technique that can help you achieve great results each time.

    I stopped cooking rice on the stove years ago. I use a microwave, which frees up burners, and doesn't require watching, particularly during holidays. I use the same ingredients with 1 T. butter added. Put all in microwave safe bowl, stir, cover, and microwave at 50% power for 20 minutes.Stir, recover, and let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Perfect rice, every time.
