Tips for fussy eaters

Can't handle the heat? Go easy on the chipotle and cajun spices!

Pro tip

The trick to perfectly fluffy rice is to thoroughly rinse it first, thereby removing as much starch as possible. Rinse it once, twice or even thrice, and, time permitting, soak it for 30 min before rinsing it a final time.

Before you start

Please wash your hands and rinse all fresh fruits and vegetables prior to cooking.
