How to Make Rice
I consider rice a staple of the gluten free home. We eat rice at least three or four nights a week. It's so versatile. You can add sauce to it or toss it with meat. You can put stew on top of it or leave it on the side. You can eat it plain with veggies or top it with bechamel. If you don't have gluten free pasta, you can usually safely substitute rice.

The best part about rice is that it's so easy to make. I think I originally learned how to make rice from one of my Middle Eastern cookbooks that I've long since misplaced. Luckily, it's super easy, so I never forgot.

Easy Method for Tasty Rice


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cups long grain rice
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan.
  • Add rice. Heat rice over medium for two minutes, stirring so that all of the rice is coated with butter.
  • Add water and salt.
  • Bring to the boil.
  • Cover pot and lower heat. Simmer for 25 minutes.
  • Leave covered and remove from the heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes and then fluff with a fork.
  • Enjoy!
Do you eat a lot of rice in your home? How do you make it?
