One of our favorite side dishes is plain rice with butter and salt.
Hubby and the Wee One especially love it.
I actually love brown rice more than white rice. However Hubby and the Wee One love white rice. So we make more white rice than brown rice.
The ratio of dry rice to water/ liquid is 1 to 2. So easy to remember.
You can certainly make this dairy free but using a dairy free butter or omitting the butter.
Rice in an electric pressure cooker
-2 c. white rice, rinsed
-3 c. water
-1 Tbsp. butter
-salt and pepper to taste
- Add the rice to the electric pressure cooker.
- Pour water over the rice. Stir.
- Manually set the pressure cooker to 8 minutes. (Put the lid on the electric pressure cooker.)
- Once finished, quickly release the pressure.
- Carefully remove the lid. Fluff the rice.
- Add the butter, salt, and pepper. Stir.
- Serve and enjoy!
Optional: Instead of adding butter, add lime juice, lime zest, and chopped cilantro for a Chipotle type rice.
