Basic rice recipe is to wash a cup of Carolina enriched white rice or other similar enriched rice as Uncle Ben's in a large bowl with hot water

Then strain it with a wire strainer rinsing it with hot water

Then I put the cup of rice in the rice steamer

with 15 ounces of water

two tablespoons of olive oil or other cooking oil or margarine or butter

two tablespoons of soy sauce

two chicken bouillon cubes

one teaspoon of Italian seasoning

dashes of celery salt

1 teaspoon of sesame oil

put the inner and outer lids on the rice steamer

I microwave it in my four year old 1100 watt General Electric microwave oven for 13 minutes on the regular power setting

then I let it stand for 7 minutes to finish cooking

then I serve it as is or one can add a small bit about a teaspoon or two of soy sauce or other seasonings

My recipe differs from the one that came with the China Village rice cooker, but by trial and error, I came up with the way I cook it.

However, different microwave ovens have different power, so the cooking time might vary.

One of these days, I might change to brown rice which is suppose to be more nutritious Microwave brown rice cooks faster - The Honolulu Advertiser - Hawaii's Newspaper .

!!!!!! For brown rice use 30 ounces of water and microwave 45 minutes.

Per pound rice is cheaper than noodles.
