Wookiee Hut Cuisine presents:
Rice in a Microwave

by SuSu & WalrusPengie

There is no reason that one should ever state so stupid a statement as, "I don't eat leftovers." Anakin Solo thought he'd get away with not having to eat some goopy stew at the Jedi Academy, which was obviously made from anything they found which was about to go bad.

His Uncle Luke simply told him to make some white rice. He could have that on its own while the others ate the stew with some rice. And when Anakin complained that he didn't know how to make white rice, he was given this formula. And the rice honestly was good enough that Anakin ended up figuring that if he had to eat the goopy stew to make others not hate him, the rice would certainly make it tolerable!

  • 1 cup rice
  • 1½ cup water
In a bowl, wash 1 cup of rice by covering it with cold water and rubbing the rice between your hands to "scrub" it. Drain the water, then repeat this washing step three times, discarding the water each time.

Place the cleaned rice in a microwave-safe bowl which is at least three times larger than the volume of rice. Add the 1½ cups water, then cover the cowl and let sit for 30 minutes.

Place the covered bowl in a microwave oven and cook on HIGH power for 5 minutes. Then let the rice "sit" for 5 minutes — no peeking or uncovering the rice. Then cook again on HIGH power for 90 seconds (1½ minutes), then leave to steam in the bowl for another 15 minutes. Uncover the rice, then fluff it up. We use a flat broad wooden spoon which is dipped in water (or else the rice will stick to the spoon).

Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish.
