There are so many reasons to love rice, including the fact that it’s super easy to make. All you need to do is set aside two minutes for prep time and cooking time? It will only set you back about 18 minutes, give or take a few minutes. Plus, the serving options are practically endless, pairing well with proteins such as fish or chicken, as well as a whole range of cooked vegetables and sauces.
