White Rice

Rice is a staple food on the Latin Caribbean islands. When you are looking for a rice dish that won't overshadow your other dishes, a simple plain white rice is acceptable and it's really simple to make.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • pinch of salt to taste


Black & Decker RC3303 3-Cup Automatic Rice Cooker1. Bring the two cups of water to boil in a sauce pan.
2. Add the rice and salt.
3. Allow to boil for about 1 minute. Stir once to prevent sticking.
4. Cover the sauce pan with an appropriate fitting lid that does not have an exhaust hole.
5. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for about 30 minutes.
Tip: Do not lift the cover until the time is up. The trapped steam cooks the rice. If you let it escape, your rice will not cook properly.
Serves: 4 half-cup portions.

The other option to making white rice is to use a rice cooker like the Black & Decker RC3303 3-Cup Automatic Rice Cooker.  This makes the process simple, avoids buring the rice and you can let it cook on its own while you continue to prepare your meal.
