Cook Rice Like Pasta

-2 cups (or more/less depending on how much you want, it will expand upon cooking) brown rice (or basmati, jasmine, white, etc)
-1 large pot of water

Bring a pot of water to a boil then add the rice (I rarely measure but at least 2 cups so I have extra). Turn down to medium heat so it doesn’t boil over. For brown rice set your timer for 60 minutes, for white basmati set it to 10 minutes. For other rice you’ll have to make a judgment call, like brown basmati will take a little longer than white so do a few taste tests while it’s cooking. Once the time is up, drain the water and cover the pot to steam for 5 minutes. This is optional but it tends to help keep the rice separated nicely.

Here’s a video I did which demonstrates the process:
