    I consider myself a good home chef but rice has always been my nemesis, until now. My daughter says I try to “ fancy” it up to much. This recipe is awesome. I use it as is for a side dish or I spread it out on a cookie sheet to dry then use it for fried rice. Both are excellent.

    This is a great recipe. You can add whatever you want to it in terms of fresh herbs, vegetables, etc. I always add a clove or two of minced garlic to the onion....sometimes a splash of white wine after the rice. One important step, which I'm surprised wasn't mentioned, since Martha made a point of it on her show, is that the rice should be well rinsed to remove as much starch as possible. This gives it the fluffy texture with individual grains of rice.

    I've made this multiple times. Delicious! I toast the rice in a skillet with the butter first then let my rice cooker finish it off with the rest of the ingredients.
