    It really is like white on rice


One of the biggest complaints about white rice is how boring and bland it can be, which is why so many people only think of it as a filler.  

This white rice recipe adds a couple of twists to create a killer white rice that has great flavor and texture.

This recipe can be halved if you're making rice for one or two people or doubled if you're making rice for a big group.

  • 1-1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 tsp salt

Add the chicken stock, water, bay leaf, butter, and salt to a medium saucepan.  Turn the heat on high and add the rice.

Once the liquid comes to a boil, give everything a good stir, cover with a tight-fitting lid, and turn the heat down to a low simmer.

Let the rice cook for 15 minutes.  Once the rice has finished cooking, take it off the heat and let it rest for 5 to 10 minutes, before removing the cover and giving it a good stir and fluffing it with a fork.

The V formation itself is a thing of beauty.  I understand that on long journeys one person cannot be expected to carry the full weight and responsibility.  When it is shared, the burden is lighter, the investment is deeper, and there is a benefit to having a range of experience to draw upon.
