You once posted your easy, microwave rice recipe…can you post it again, please? Thank you!
Do you cover the bowl of rice with one of those microwave covers?
I ask because stovetop directions for rice always tell you to cover the rice while cooking so that the rice absorbs the liquid…and was wondering if the water would dissipate too rapidly in the microwave if not covered. I purchased the little WP rice cooker, but am thinking that microwaved rice would also turn out ok.
Oh, I just take a bowl, put one cup of rice and two cups of water, and a bit of salt, and set it to 22 minutes on medium power (5 out of 10 on my microwave). I usually add a little butter after it’s done. Try it and adjust as you need.
I now cook pretty much all grains in the microwave. Millet and ground corn and others will take longer and of course, oats less. Usually there are directions right on the bag for how long it takes to microwave.
The bowl needs to be large enough or else there’ll be nasty spillovers.
Oh, and I did do a Google search…only to come up with "8 easy steps" …8 steps?…easy?…I don’t think so! Or soak rice for 1 1/2 hours?…again, I don’t think so!
