Kid’s Stove-Top Rice

This is a recipe for kids and their parents, but mainly for kids. This recipe is written so that kids can cook dinner, for the most part unsupervised. This recipe is part of my Cooking With Kids Week. All week long, I’ll be sharing kid-friendly recipes the kids can make for dinner and when you step into your house after a long day, you should hear from your kids “Wash your hands, make a salad and set the table–dinner is ready in half an hour.”

In this week’s newsletter, I shared with my subscribers, a kid-friendly recipe~Chinese Chicken served with Kids Stove-Top rice (recipe below) and a Pear Salad.

Kid’s Stove-Top Rice

1 cup white rice

2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 Tablespoon butter


Place water and salt in a medium-size saucepan. Place the pan on medium-high heat and bring water to a boil. Slowly add rice and butter. Turn heat down to a simmer, place lid on and simmer for 20 minutes.

When rice is ready, remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

Cook’s Tip: A see-through lid is a great help. You can watch and check the rice without removing the lid and letting the steam escape.

Servings: 4

The recipes I’m creating this week are designed for 4 people, however make the necessary changes if these portions are not right for your family. My timetable for weeknights aims for 6:30pm dinner time, but if this doesn’t suit your household, use an adusted schedule that does. In fact, feel free to write in any notes, directions or substitutions in the comment section below.
