Microwave Vegan Cooking for One : Basic Rice


Basic Rice

  • ½ Cup Rice
  • 1 Cup Water
  • ½ tsp. Vegetable Oil
  • 1/4 tsp. Salt or to taste

Method

Wash the rice under running water and soak it in water for 30 minutes before cooking.

Drain the rice & place all ingredients in a large glass or any other microwave safe bowl. Note: the rice expands during cooking, so be sure to choose a container that is large enough.

Microwave on high, uncovered, for 6 minutes. Microwave on medium, uncovered, for 3 minutes. 

Check the rice by crushing it with a fork, if the grain is still slightly hard. Cook for another 2 minutes.

Let the cooked rice rest in microwave for 3 minutes.

Once the rice is cooked, drain excess water if any.
