Toasting the dry rice grains in a little butter or olive oil before adding the water brings out their flavor and adds a fantastic nutty note in the finished dish.
Cook the rice with chicken of vegetable broth
We recommend you go with a 50/50 mix of broth and water to avoid your rice getting sticky with too much broth. This will give your rice a great taste and will give it richness without going overboard.
Season the rice with what you’re cooking
Very often, some of the same seasonings going into the main dish are great for the rice as well. Whole spices are usually better for adding subtle flavors, while ground spices are great when we really want the rice to stand out on its own.
Use all of these great techniques and enjoy amazing rice dishes every time!
