Protein Rice

 5 from 4 reviews

What the heck is protein rice?

Instead of water I use beef or chicken bone broth to make this rice, so not only is it light, fluffy and perfectly cooked, you’re getting the benefit of collagen, gelatin, amino acids, vitamins & minerals.

In this video I’ll show you how to make an aromatic version on the stove. I’ll also show you how to do this in an Instant Pot.

Protein Rice

What the heck is protein rice? Instead of water I use beef or chicken bone broth to make this rice, so not only is it light, fluffy and perfectly cooked, you're getting the benefit of collagen, gelatin, amino acids, vitamins & minerals.

In this video I'll show you how to make an aromatic version on the stove. I'll also show you how to do this in an Instant Pot.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 300 g basmati rice
  • 450 ml bone broth
  • 3 cardamom
  • 2 star anise
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper

Instructions

  1. Rinse off dust and starch from the rice with cold water (stops it clumping in the pan and allows it to become light and fluffy). Transfer to a medium size saucepan, dutch oven or casserole dish.
  2. Pierce the cardamom and empty out into the pan with the rice, including the cases. Add the remaining ingredients and stir.
  3. Put the lid on the pan and bring to the boil as quickly as possible.
  4. Once it's boiling turn it right down and leave the lid on for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not take off that lid, because the steam created is going to cook the rice.
  5. Remove the lid and you'll have beautiful, fluffy aromatic rice.
  6. Take out the cardamom and star anise.
  7. Run a fork through to make it nice and light and fluffy.
