The Ultimate White Rice

Prep time 10 mins
Cook time 30 mins
Yield Makes 8 servings
Rinsing the rice helps get rid of excess starch, resulting in light and fluffy--not sticky--rice.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups uncooked converted white rice
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, peeled
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

How to Make It

  1. Place rice in a fine wire-mesh strainer, and rinse under cold water until water runs clear; drain. Combine rinsed rice, 4 1/2 cups water, and remaining ingredients in a large saucepan over medium-high heat; bring to a boil. Boil, uncovered, 3 minutes. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 to 20 minutes or until water is absorbed. Fluff rice with a fork. Remove garlic clove, and serve immediately.
