When you are baking rice dishes or casseroles, minute rice is really necessary if you don't want to have crunchy bits of inedible rice in your meal. But I hate the texture of minute rice & I refuse to buy it, so what do I do?

Minute rice is just partially cooked rice, so all you have to do is partially cook your rice before adding it to your recipe. Here's what to do:

  1. Mix your rice together with twice as much hot water in a saucepan.
  2. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
  3. Simmer rice for 7 minutes or half the time required to fully cook the rice.
  4. Drain well & use as a one-for-one substitute for minute rice. (If your recipe calls for 3/4 cup in cooked minute rice, use 3/4 cup partially cooked regular rice.)
