How to Cook White Rice With Olive Oil

Save

Adding olive oil to rice during the cooking process improves the texture of the rice while adding flavor and moisture. Add olive oil to the water before adding the rice. As the rice simmers, it absorbs the water and oil and is not sticky.

Things You'll Need

  • Saucepan
  • Salt
  • Combine 1 cup water, 1/2 tsp. olive oil and 1/4 tsp. salt in a saucepan.

  • Turn the stove on high and heat the pan until the water begins to boil.

  • Add 1/2 cup white rice to the boiling water and stir the mixture.

  • Cover the pan with a lid and reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the water is completely absorbed, about 12 to 20 minutes. You can check if there's water left by slightly moving the rice with a fork, but do not stir it.

  • Turn the heat off and allow the rice to rest for 5 minutes. This will allow the moisture in the pan to redistribute in the rice. Remove the lid and stir the rice with a fork. Serve immediately.
