This was an easy to make rice recipe that worked well with Smokin Hot Black-Eyed Peas and Collards. I used dry bay leaves.

I don't always succeed when I try to make rice. But this one was perfect. I used dried bay leaves. And I omitted the salt. I put it in the oven at 350 F (cause I was baking something else at 350 F) for the 15 minutes with butter and it was just perfect. My boyfriend didn't add anything to it cause he liked it that way and me too. Thanks Margo :) Made for PAC Spring 2010

Made for Potluck Tag. This a great rice recipe. I couldn't believe that it was done in 11 minutes and was perfectly tender and for once my rice didn't boil over. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Grumpy!

I used jasmine rice and halved the recipe. I actually let it sit for a few minutes, and when I came back it had absorbed all the water and was perfect! I served with Ratatouille With Chickpeas -- Crock-Pot. Made for ZWT 2009-Epicurean Queens.

Wow! I am very very picky about my rice. This worked well and tasted great! I was confused by the bay leaves? I do not know their purpose but you could not taste any hint of them at all. Thank you for a simple and wonderful recipe! *Made for ZWT5*

Simple, yes, but out of this world delicious! How can a humble recipe with minimal ingredients taste so good? I used half long grain white rice and half jasmine. Followed the directions to the letter but had to use dried bay leaves. Because I used dried bay leaves, I left them in the entire cooking process until serving. PS salt was reduced by half. Thank you, it was the perfect accompaniment to my menu. Reviewed for ZWT 2009.
