Preparation, uses, and tips
Rinse 1 cup of rice and drain well. In a heavy saucepan with a lid, combine rice with 2
cups (500mL) of water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and simmer,
covered, until tender (about 30 minutes for medium- to long-grain white rice, 40 minutes for
brown rice, 20 minutes for arborio or short-grain rice, and 1 hour for wild rice).
Add cooked white beans, finely chopped fresh
sage, and white pepper to cooked rice. Excellent in casseroles, soups, side dishes, and
entrées when a stickier texture is desired.
To reheat cooked rice, for each 1 cup (200 grams) of rice, add 2 Tbsp (30mL) liquid. Cover
and heat four to five minutes on top of range or in oven. In a microwave oven, cook on High
about 1 1/2 minutes per cup (200g).
