I got this recipe off the internet a while back, but I can't remember which website. It is my favorite way to serve rice. It's simple to prepare, very tasty and turns common rice into a tasty side dish to complement just about any main entree. I've been making it for a long time now, and I find that it goes really well with just about any main dish. But my all-time favorite is to serve it with baked chicken breasts served with a tangy lime sauce. UPDATE....based on feedback, I have worked on improving this recipe. Specifically, I increased the amount of water (from 3 1/2 cups to 4 cups, which I think produces a much fluffier rice. But if you have better luck using more or less liquid when cooking rice, please feel free to adjust the amount of water.
