How to cook rice is something that baffles so many people. In the end they often just buy it ready-cooked (usually white) by which time its nutrient value has plummeted and it’s likely had unnecessary stuff added to it, not to mention the price of it.
Once you know how, cooking rice is a breeze and you’ll wonder why you avoided it for this long.
This method was given to Nuush by one of our long-time clients Vic Alker. Vic is a great practical cook, full of common-sense. You can trust her recipes; you’ll have fluffy rice every time!
*We suggest 60g for inactive females and 90g for inactive males. Increase by a third if you are a hard exerciser.
Nuush clients: Please apply the portion sizes stated in your account and divide the recipe so that you make only as much you need.
Put the rice in a large pan, big enough to allow the rice to expand to about double its original size. Pour a full kettle of boiling water over. For more servings you’ll need more water, as a general guide the water should be about two inches above rice level. The rice will go sticky if there’s too little water.
Bring it to the boil on the hob, then stir with a flat-bottomed implement to unstick any rice from the base of the pan. You won’t need to stir it again.
Simmer for approx 20 minutes, until there’s still a slight bite to the rice when you test it. Note: White rice will only need 7-8 mins. If the water seems to be reducing too much add a little more boiling water.
Tip into a sieve to drain the water off. Do not pour any water over it.
Return the rice to the pan and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Leave covered and off the heat for a minimum of two minutes and a maximum of twelve minutes. When you’ve finished preparing the rest of your meal you will have lovely fluffy rice ready to go!
Wholegrain rice is a rich source of nutrients and fibre. In particular it provides manganese which helps the body to produce energy and maintain a healthy nervous system. Selenium is another of its highlights, aiding thyroid function and immunity. It’s a great source of phosphorus for healthy cell function and strong bones as well as magnesium for nerve function regulation. Wholegrain rice retains the rice grains’ outer layers which hold the nutrients and provide fibre for healthy gut transition.
Rice is great if you’re hungry and want 2000 of something.
