Khao Deng Red Rice (100% Organic)
1 cup rice and 2-1/2 cups liquid equal 4 servings. Rinse rice under cold water until water runs clear. Place rice and water or stock in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until liquid is absorbed and grains are soft, about 25 minutes. Flavor tip: before adding liquid, saute rice in pan with a dash of oil until slightly roasted, about five minutes.
