True to its name, long-grain rice is slim and lengthy, nearly four to five times longer than it is wide. This type of rice produces distinct firm grains that stay fluffy and separate after cooking. The grains have a firm, dry texture, and are best for side dishes, pilafs, and salads. Its neutral flavour allows it to mix into both savoury and sweet dishes to make filling, low-cost meals.
Tip: Always having cooked white long-grain rice on hand means you can whip up a meal with ease. For 8 servings, add 2 cups (500 mL) of long-grain rice to 3 cups (750 mL) of water in a pot with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, covered, until cooked—about 20 minutes. Let cool, cover, and refrigerate for up to four days.
