Rice with Fresh Herbs Recipe

Rice with Fresh Herbs

Total:25 min
Prep: 5 min
Cook: 20 min

Yield: Serves 4


1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon
kosher salt, plus extra if needed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, such as basil, chives, cilantro, mint, or tarragon, or a combination of many


Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add the rice and 1 tablespoon of the salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is tender, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain through a fine-mesh sieve and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking. Shake the sieve to drain as much water as possible.

Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the rice and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and stir with a heatproof rubber spatula to coat all the rice with the butter. Once the rice is warmed through, about 3 minutes, transfer the rice to a serving bowl and add the herbs plus additional salt, if needed. Stir with a fork to incorporate and fluff the rice and serve warm or at room temperature.

Crispy Rice Recipe

Show: Ayesha's Home Kitchen
Episodes: Date Night and Date Night

Total:1 hr 20 minActive: 30 min
Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Level: Easy


Kosher salt
1 1/2 cups basmati rice
2 tablespoons plain yogurt
1 tablespoon butter, melted, plus 1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/2 teaspoon sumac, optional


Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil.

Place the rice in a large bowl, rinse with cold water and drain in a colander until the water runs totally clear. Drain well.

Add the rice to the pot and boil until the grains are soft on the outside but still hard at the center, about 6 minutes. Drain the rice and rinse under cold water.

Measure out 1 1/4 cups of the parcooked rice and transfer to a bowl; stir in the yogurt, the 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1/4 teaspoon salt.

Melt the oil and the remaining 1 tablespoon butter together over medium-low heat in a 2- to 3-quart nonstick pot with a tight-fitting lid. Add the yogurt rice and spread it evenly to cover the bottom of the pot. Add the remaining rice, mounding it into a pyramid shape. Insert the handle of a wooden spoon into the mound 3 or 4 times to make vents for steam to escape. Increase the heat to medium-high and cook until the rice starts to steam, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pot, first with a clean towel and then with a lid. Steam until the rice is fully cooked and a golden brown crust has formed on the bottom, about 50 minutes.

Spoon the loose rice onto a platter, then use a firm spatula to remove the crust from the pan. Top the rice with the crust and sprinkle with the parsley and sumac if using. Serve immediately.
