The difference between the American and French ways of cooking white rice? Rather than simmering rice in a modest amount of water, the French throw the rice in a big pot of salted water and cook on high heat. This crowd-pleasing side dish is done in a quick 12 minutes!



Ingredient Checklist

Throw away those rice cookers and get back the real estate in your kitchen cabinet. This is easy and you don't have to watch the pot. No more Minute Rice for me. I use to cook my rice in the microwave, which is also pretty easy, but I think that this method is even faster. My rice came out nice and fluffy and cooked perfectly. Thanks, Martha.
