If all you need is a plain bowl of rice to serve with dinner, this is the easiest, most foolproof method that I know.
You don’t need measuring cups, a recipe, or even a specific water-to-rice ratio — just cover the rice with a few inches of water, bring it to a boil, then simmer until the rice is tender. Drain the rice, return it to the pot, and let it steam in its own residual heat until you’re ready to serve.
Super easy, right? It’s nothing fancy, but I promise that it gets the job done.
