EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Serving meat-eaters and vegetarians at the same table? Add cooked bulk Italian sausage to the finished dish for the meat-lovers in your family.

Microwave ovens vary, so know what to look for in the finished dish. Almost all of the liquid should be absorbed and the grains of rice should be tender but not mushy. If your rice needs more time or there's still too much liquid, add a couple more minutes to the microwaving time, being sure to continue microwaving on Medium (50%).
