    Thanks so much! Before I cooked the rice, I washed it a few times, because I remember from somewhere that rice can be washed before cooking. I also just cooked the rice with water and vegan butter and the rice came out super soft and yummy! I was so excited to open the microwave door to see a beautiful bowl of cooked rice! I added salt and sweet chili sauce at the end. Amazing! Super excited as this is my first time actually cooking rice successfully and it was in the microwave. lol! Thank you for the recipe!

    What a life saver! I never knew I could do this. Living in an rv right now with only a microwave working for heat. I made the perfect yellow rice. I stirred it every three mins and added water twice towards the end. I also microwaved an additional three minutes to really get the right texture. Stirring is key w the extra water. :D

    So easy! and perfect every time. I use unsalted chicken stock for the liquid. I have never had a boilover or a hard kernal of rice left. Easier clean up than my rice cooker and instant pot.

    This rice came out perfect! I tweaked it a tad, I added a bit more organic broth, put a towel in microwave in case of over flow, cooked uncovered high 8 1/2min and covered at level 6 temp for 12min.
