Why I Love This Recipe

Since the steam does all of the work in this recipe, resist the urge to stir the rice or uncover the pot more than is absolutely necessary in order for the rice to have just the right texture in the end. Ingredients with an asterisk (*) are available in the Whole Foods Market Family of Brands.
