When my oldest son decided to cook dinner for his family and asked how to make white rice, I got a little worried. You see, he was also making a leg of lamb. How was he supposed to make lamb when he didn't know how to make white rice? Luckily, rice is so easy to make, he became a real pro after making it one time. The lamb was a whole different story...

What You'll Need

  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cups uncooked white rice

How to Make It

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add rice, stir with a fork to ensure rice is level and covered in water.
  2. Cover and reduce heat to low and allow to simmer for about 20 minutes.
