Step 1: Measure the water Add one and a half cups water for every cup of white rice, or two cups water for every cup of brown rice, to a heavy saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Step 2: Bring to a boil Bring the water to a rolling boil. Add one tablespoon olive oil or butter for body and flavor. Tip For fluffier rice, rinse before cooking. This removes excess starch but also washes away some vitamins and minerals. Step 3: Stir Add the rice and stir. Cook for one minute. Then reduce the heat to low and cover. Step 4: Simmer white rice for 16-18 minutes or 35-40 minutes for brown rice. Tip Don't peek! Leave the lid on as much as possible to avoid losing steam, which is what cooks the rice.
