Making perfectly fluffy white rice is easier than you think. And you don’t need a rice cooker… just your favorite saucepan. Cooked rice isn’t just good as a side; you can add it to soups, stews, or braises or use it as a base for a quick fried rice dish. You can also whip up a hearty rice salad by stirring in parsley, halved cherry tomatoes, and cooked shrimp or diced chicken or turkey breast.
