Cooking Rice with the Simmering Basket

Do you know that there are three ways to cook rice with Thermomix®? The first method to cook rice is by using the simmering basket. It’s healthier when you cook rice with the simmering basket as the carbs will be separated from the rice while cooking 🥰

Here are some tips!
✔️ Rinse the rice thoroughly to reduce the starch content.
✔️ Select Varoma temperature to cook the rice and steam food at the same time
✔️ Cook as little as 20g up to 350g of rice of any type.
✔️ Add a few drops of cooking oil into mixing bowl before cooking when Varoma is in use to steam food at the same time.
