Step 1

1 Cook Rice

In a medium pot, bring 112 cup water to a boil. Stir in the jasmine rice; cover and reduce the heat to low. Simmer for 15 minutes until all the water is absorbed. Cover the pot and let the rice absorb the water off the heat. Fluff the finished rice with a fork.

Tip! When you swap the chef selected protein; adjust the cooking times and method to ensure your protein is properly cooked and therefore safe to eat.
