One of the easiest ways to prepare rice for your daily meal is through the boiling method. You will find that using this method, you will have tender grains of rice that are best served as part of your dish.
If you are thinking of preparing white rice, the boiling method works perfectly.
A common question that is usually associated with preparing rice is how much cooked rice will you have when you cook one cup of uncooked rice.
Once you have the cooked rice, you can be creative whether you want to use rice for your other food preparations, such as soups or salads.
The boiling method can best be applied to almost all white rice.

To most well-experienced, modern-day chefs and even innovative food enthusiasts, rice seems to be a well-liked addition to their food repertoire.
Rice does not only deliver practicality but promises versatility in many ways.
You could eat rice as part of the main dish or as an extra dish.
Rice is almost often synonymous to a food with a distinctive texture and flavour. In fact, to most ethnic households, rice is considered to be a staple food; and almost always, rice is a good starting point for many interesting dishes.
Considering the emergence of the many ethnic influences, you will find many recipes that seemed to offer a unique fusion of many ethnic flavours today. Take, for example, cuisines introduced by Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Indian, Malaysian, Singaporean, Korean, Vietnamese and even Filipino and Spanish.
One of the characteristics that you can observe when you cook rice is that rice holds well. And if you experiment and mix rice with other ingredients, it would blend perfectly.
Thinking of reinventing leftovers?
Rice works just as well – letting you experience the essence of modern cooking.

In saucepan, bring broth and rice to a boil over medium high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook until all liquid has been absorbed, about 40 minutes. Let cool slightly.
In skillet, heat 1 tbsp (15 ml) of oil over medium-high heat. Cook red onion until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in red pepper and mushrooms and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin, coriander, salt and red pepper flakes and cook one minute.
Scrape onion mixture into the bowl of a food processor. Add breadcrumbs, cooked brown rice, black beans, queso or feta and egg and pulse until combined.
Using wet hands (will help mixture from sticking), form into ½ cup (125 ml) patties.
Cook in batches in a large, non-stick skillet over medium low heat, using 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil at a time until golden brown, about 6 to 8 minutes per side.
Serve on gluten-free buns with dill pickle slices and a yogurt cilantro sauce (and some extra Queso if you’re feeling decadent).
