Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice, not converted
  • 2 1/4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest, optional
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, optional

Method

Step 1

Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until slightly toasted and golden, about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in the water and salt, bring to a boil, cover, reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 18 minutes. Then let the rice rest off the heat for 5 minutes¿please don't lift the lid to give a peek or stir, or the rice will not cook evenly. Put the rice in a large serving bowl, fluff and separate the grains with a fork. Add lemon zest and/or thyme, if desired, and serve.
