Originally from Thailand, white Jasmine rice is a long-grain variety of rice with a nutty flavor, fragrant aroma and a slightly sticky texture when cooked. For this recipe, the added sugar makes it sweet, while the freshly grated ginger adds a punch of flavor. Consider adding your favorite vegetable to increase the nutrition, flavor and eye appeal.

2 Tbsp. grated and peeled fresh ginger
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. coarse salt
2 cups jasmine rice


  1. Bring ginger, sugar, salt, and 2 1/2 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan; boil 2 minutes.
  2. Stir in rice; reduce heat to low.
  3. Cover; cook until most water is absorbed, 15 to 18 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, 7 minutes.
  5. Fluff rice with a fork before serving.

  • I cheated, cheated, cheated and it was easy, easy, easy! I used frozen jasmine rice – the kind that comes in the microwavable pouch, and added the ginger, sugar and salt. No mess and easy clean up!

Yield: 4 servings
