  • 1 cup white rice
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 tsp butter or 1 tsp margarine
  • 1/8 tsp salt


  1. Using a 2 quart casserole dish with lid, put rice, hot water, butter and salt in dish. Stir. (I put my casserole dish on a plate in the micro as sometimes the water boils over a little. Saves cleanup after).
  2. Cover, and microwave on high power 5 minutes. Stir with fork (careful watch the steam!)
  3. Cover and put back in microwave and cook on medium this time for 15 minutes.
  4. Remove lid (careful again!) and fluff with fork.
  5. Let stand 2-3 minutes.
  6. Serve.
