rice with vegetables

I sometimes add other vegetables to the rice to save time and dishes.

a. boiled rice

Boiling rice is easy, but you do need to read the instructions on the package for the required amount of water and the recommended cooking time. Parboiled rice can be as short as 5 minutes, regular rice as much as 30 minutes.

I usually try to use the correct amount of water, so that there is no liquid left by the time the rice is fully cooked. It is possible to use extra liquid, e.g. if you want to use the rice broth as a base for sauce.

When using boil-in-a-bag rice, use enough water to fully submerge the bag. Just remember: the more water you use, the more flavor you'll be pouring down the drain.


This is what you need for 2-3 servings:

  • 1 cup rice
  • 2-3 cups water
  • vegetables of your choice
  • S&P, spices of your choice
