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.
