Watch and learn how to cook white rice and then use it as a start for these delicious and easy rice recipes for dinner.
Did you know that white rice has an indefinite shelf life? You can buy one of those big bags and never wonder what you’ll have for dinner. I created a video for how to cook rice a while back. So I’m sharing that here again. And then keep scrolling for my family favorite and easy rice recipes for dinner. Honestly sometimes I’ll eat just a plain bowl of rice mixed with a little butter. My kids like shredded cheese mixed into rice. I also like that leftover rice can be stir fried with pretty much anything. Fried rice can be a clean out the fridge meal that feels like it was completely on purpose. Comment below with your favorite rice recipe to add to this collection.

How to Cook Rice
Sometimes I use butter instead of vegetable oil. Toasting the rice before simmering helps to add flavor and texture.
