When you don’t have time to wait, use Instant Microwavable Rice to complement a quick meal. Instant Rice is actually regular white rice that has been precooked and dehydrated. During the dehydration process, microscopic cracks form in the grains. When cooking the Instant Rice, these cracks allow boiling water to penetrate the grains quicker which dramatically drops the cooking time from 20 minutes down to just about 5 minutes. Instant Rice is an ideal addition to any meal for people on the go.
