Here is a foolproof method to cook rice using the Anova Precision Oven. By using the steam function of the oven, you’ll take the guesswork out of making perfectly fluffy rice. Note: The recipe below adds seasonings for cilantro-lime rice, which is great as a side dish or added to a burrito. You can, however, use this recipe as a template to make any rice recipe you like—or for just plain white rice.
