No time to turn the stovetop on? No problem! Mahatma® Red Beans and Seasoned Rice can be cooked either in the microwave or on the stove.
For the traditional stovetop method: bring 3 ¼ cups of water to a boil, stir in rice mix, cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes, stir and enjoy.
Pro tip: for saucier results, add an extra 1/4 water.
If you cook rice and beans in the microwave, use a microwave save dish, cover, and follow the same procedure. Note that water should be hot when combined with rice mix. Microwave ovens vary, 20 minutes is an approximate time for this cooking method.
