Basic Cooked Rice

1 cup rice
1-2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2-1/4 cups water

Combine all ingredients. Cover pan with lid and bring to a boil over high heat. When beginning to boil, turn heat down to very low and cook about 35 minutes, until the water is almost gone. Remove lid only when necessary. Take pan from heat and leave covered. Let rice steam, for 10-15 minutes before serving. Fluff with fork before serving.

NOTE: Rice may be soaked 30 minutes in water before cooking to shorten cooking time. When soaked add oil, cover and cook 15-20 minutes. Steam. Eat hot or cold as cereal, add to chili, soups or eat cold in salad. Combine cooked wheat with cooked rice for a pilaf.
