Full Answer

Rice is a versatile food that blends well with chicken, pork and a variety of other foods. Rice also comes in many forms including quick-cook, long grain and short grain. Rice is cooked, by boiling it in water. As the rice cooks, it absorbs the water, turning the tiny, hard grains into larger, soft pieces, which can then be eaten. One cup of white rice should be cooked in approximately 1-3/4 cups water, other types of rice vary, so be sure to adjust the recipe accordingly. Salt and other seasonings can be added to the rice, if desired.
