Simple Bulk Cooking Directions:
Fill a large pot 2/3 of the way up with water. This will ensure that the water doesn't spill when it's boiling. Don’t under-fill the pot because this will make the Rice Pilaf sticky. Empty the entire bag of the Uncle Tom's Rice Pilaf in boiling water, stir and cook on high for 5 min, add more hot water as needed then cook on medium for 10-15 min or until rice & pasta is fully cooked. Strain out excess water and rinse Rice Pilaf with fresh Hot water to remove all of the excess starch off the rice and noodles. Strain water out again. Mix in (optional) one cup of oil and/or melted butter with desired seasoning. Lastly, mix in a cup of nuts like sliced or chopped almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pine nuts or peanuts and finally add your fresh herbs like chopped cilantro, parsley, mint or chives for color and flavor. Let set for 15 min, mix in your pre-cooked vegetables if desired, serves approximately 24 servings.
