Choose a long-grain rice variety such as brown basmati, brown jasmine or regular long-grain brown rice over short- or medium-grain rice.
Place the rice in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse it thoroughly under cool, running water to remove as much starch from the individual grains as possible. Cover the rice with cold water in a large bowl and allow the grains to soak for at least 30 minutes if time allows. Drain off as much water as possible and let dry if possible Even better, soak rice over night.
Fill a large saucepan with water, using approximately four times as much water as the amount of rice you plan to cook. Bring the water to a boil and stir in a teaspoon of salt.
Add the rice, stir once and bring the water back to a steady boil. Allow the rice to cook until it reaches your desired level of tenderness without additional stirring. Use a spoon to remove and check a few grains after 15 minutes for white rice and after 25 minutes for brown rice.
Drain the rice in the strainer. Rinse the grains with hot water, allow them to drain again briefly, then serve the rice in a warm dish or use as desired.
Plan on 2 cups of long-grain rice yielding 3 to 4 cups of cooked rice. Store cooked rice in the refrigerator in an air-tight container for two to three days. Whenever possible, use long-grain brown rice instead of white rice. Brown rice contains more fiber and essential nutrients than white rice.
Do not stir the rice while it is boiling. Stirring may cause the rice to become sticky. Don't attempt to use this method to cook sticky rice, advises Whole Foods Market.
