- Best made with white long grain rice for fluffiest outcome. Medium grain is the next best, then short grain or sushi rice (still great, just less pilaf-like). Basmati and jasmine will also work but will take about 5 minutes longer to cook. Not suited to brown rice (takes too long too cook), risotto or paella rice. Not yet tested with quinoa or other rice subs!
You can sub the frozen with more chopped fresh veggies. But if you opt to use fresh instead of frozen veggies, add 1/4 cup of water to the rice (frozen veg adds water as it melts).
3. LEAFY GREENS:
This can be substituted with any leafy greens that wilts quite easily. It will even work with torn kale (remove from the stems) or leafy part of Asian greens. Roughly chop, then use per recipe. PS Asian greens don't taste "Asiany"!
4. RICE FIRMNESS:
This recipe makes al dente fluffy rice (ie tender and fluffy). If you like your rice softer, add 1/4 cup of water to the rice.
per serving, assuming 5 servings.
