Minute Rice, dubbed as the "original instant rice" since 1949, is a precooked rice that doesn't need cooking. With a few household ingredients and supplies, you can have a bowl of steaming hot rice within minutes. Cooking options offer versatility because you can choose to use the stove top or the microwave. Measurements are easy to remember because they consist of equal parts of liquid and rice.
Things You'll Need
- 1 tsp. tub margarine
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- Microwave-safe container
Stove Top Directions
Measure 1 cup of Minute Rice for two servings, 2 cups of rice for four servings or 3 cups of rice for six servings of rice.
Pour 1 cup of water in a saucepan for two servings, 2 cups of water for four servings and 3 cups of water for six servings of rice.
Place the saucepan with water on the stove top and bring to a boil. Add 1 tsp. of tub margarine and 1/2 tsp. of salt to the water.
Stir in the measured rice and cover with a lid. Remove from heat and allow to stand for five minutes, covered, before serving.
Place the desired amount of water and rice into a microwave-safe bowl. Add 1 tsp. of tub margarine and 1/2 tsp. of salt if desired.
Cover and place in microwave. Cook on "high" for six minutes for two servings, eight minutes for four servings and 10 minutes for six servings.
Let the rice stand in the covered container for five minutes, or until all water is absorbed. Uncover and fluff with a fork before serving.
