Minute Rice directions listed on MinuteRice.com include a timetable for preparing the rice in the microwave, listing recommended times according to the amount of servings. Rice prepared on the stove top, however, requires the same amount of time to prepare regardless of the amount.
When preparing Minute Rice in the microwave, cook the rice for between six and 10 minutes depending on the number of servings being prepared. After removing the rice from the microwave, let it sit for five minutes to ensure that all water is absorbed. Rice prepared on the stove top should also sit for five minutes after cooking.
