Steamed Rice
30 mins (prep 5, cooking 25)
7 ingredients
2-4 servings
My folks ALWAYS made their rice this way (Dad taught Mom, too!), only omitting the onion and using water only when preparing it for something sweet, like a rice pudding. It really takes no longer than ordinary rice, and it tastes so much better. Try it, and you will never go back to making rice the old way! The orzo option is my own addition and is a nice variation, especially when having company.
