If you use a rice cooker, I don’t blame you. But now that I know how to make stovetop rice, I’m not sure if I’ll ever replace by rice cooker. Just gives me more room for other kitchen gadgets 🤓

And a milllionnn more. We love rice over here. Let’s get cooking.
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 cups dry jasmine rice (not rinsed)
- Bring water, salt, and olive oil to boil in a medium saucepan.

- Turn off the fire after 20 minutes, but leave lid on and keep on warm burner for 5 minutes.
- Fluff rice and serve!
