Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe for black beans and rice is one of my favorite meals my Dad used to make for us growing up.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 cups raw long grain white rice or converted long grain white rice
2 tablespoons pure Spanish olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
4 cups of water if using long grain white rice; 5 cups of water if using converted


First step is to ignore the package directions.

Bring the rice, water, oil, and salt to a boil over high heat and boil until all the water has been absorbed and small "craters" form on top. Then and only then, cover the rice and let it finish cooking over low heat. If you have never prepared rice this way, and you are intimidated by Uncle Ben, you will be tempted to lower the heat and cover the pot too early. But my follow my directions and you will be rewarded with the fluffiest rice you have ever cooked. Even if you double or quadruple the recipe, you will get the same perfect results.
