Hi everybody!!!!! Does anyone have any advice? I found a recipe for rice that sounded good—only it called for chicken broth instead of water, and it didn’t come out too good—the consistency of the rice was soggy…the recipe said to put some oil in the pot and then brown the rice for 1 minute before adding the broth and boiling, etc…...that sounded a little odd to me, but I tried it; maybe that was why it didn’t come out…??? has anyone ever done this with excellent results????

Thanks, guys!!  The bullion cubes are a good idea—I used to first cook the rice (I use Jasmine rice, btw), and THEN add a little broth after it was done…but this cooking the rice, itself, in broth?  Not too sure about that one!!

Oh, so THAT’S why you saute the rice first…..thanks, I didn’t know that…...I don’t think I want any nut flavor in my rice (I’M enough of a nut as it is!)...
