If you’re tempted to toss leftover rice for fear the grains will dry out when reheated, try this trick to guarantee better-than-ever leftovers:
1. Transfer rice to container with tight-fitting lid. (Rice can be stored in container for up to 3 days).
2. To reheat, spoon rice into microwave-safe bowl. Sprinkle rice with 2 tbsp. water per cup. Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap; using tip of knife, poke small hole in plastic. Microwave on high, until hot (one minute for every cup).
This steamy environment coaxes moisture into the grains and helps to revive the soft, tender texture of the rice.
