Using broth instead of water makes for a simple and flavorful rice dish.


  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup uncooked regular long-grain white rice


  1. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, heat broth to a boil. Stir in rice; reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. 
  2. Editor’s Note: To make Florentine Simmered Rice, add 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning to broth. Stir in 1 cup chopped spinach with rice. Stir in 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese just before serving. Serve with additional cheese.
