Bamboo Rice

There’s no need to rinse this pale green rice. You can add a couple cardamom pods or a couple whole cloves if you want to go the fragrant route, although I think the bamboo has a delicate fragrance on its own.



1 cup bamboo rice

21/2 cups water

Pinch sea salt


Bring rice, water and salt to a boil in a large saucepan, stirring once or twice.

Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 20 minutes.

Remove from heat and let it rest, covered, for 5 minutes. Gently fluff with a fork.
