Rice is easy to make in any pot. The simple use of different spices can change its use or what it accents.
- chicken stock (optional)
- onion or garlic (optional)
- lime and cilantro (optional, for a Mexican taste)
- Add some amount of rice to a pot that has a cover.
- Add twice as much liquid to the same pot. Water is typical, but for extra flavor, use stock or broth.
- If desired, dice onion or garlic and mix into rice.
- Cover the pot, put it on the stove and turn the heat on the highest level.
- As soon as you hear the water beginning to bubble and boil over, turn the heat down to low and allow it to simmer.
- Wait for twenty minutes or so until the liquid has evaporated and the rice will be ready.
