How to Cook Instant Rice

Rice can be a delicious side dish or key ingredient in casseroles, soups, and stews. Unfortunately, making a perfect pot of rice can be a frustrating and time-consuming process. If you're tired of waiting 20 minutes or more for a pot, instant rice is the ideal alternative. The rice is precooked, so you only have to cook it for a few minutes for perfect taste and texture. Instant rice is available in both white and brown varieties, and you can choose between stove-top or microwave preparation to make a tasty, warm bowl.
