Rice scares me. Maybe scares isn’t the right word. Terrifies. Rice terrifies me, that’s probably more appropriate. I am somehow incapable of fully cooking rice. There are always those crunchy pieces still left. It’s truly gross. I blame it on my pots. It is in no way a user error.
When I was given the opportunity to try Minute Rice, I’m not going to lie, I was a little apprehensive. How was I going to get this rice cooked? Were y’all going to realize that I can’t even cook rice properly so why in the world do I have a food blog?? And, then, after reading the directions for cooking the rice? I was even more terrified. I knew I was just going to end up with a big pot of inedible crunchy white rice.
But y’all, Minute Rice is AWESOME! The only thing I had to get right was boiling some water. Boil water, drop in rice, let it sit for 5 minutes & BOOM ~ I had a pot full of soft, fluffy, fully cooked rice!! I may or may not have danced around my kitchen. Which may or may not have caused the Mister to look at me like I was crazy. Until he tasted my fully cooked rice.
