Microwaving is a quick and easy way to cook rice and does not require any special equipment. Long grain rice should be cooked on high for 5 minutes or until boiling. After boiling, the power should be reduced to 50 percent, and the rice should be microwaved for approximately 15 minutes more or until all the water is absorbed. The rice should be removed from the microwave and allowed to stand for 5 minutes before it is served. It should be seasoned to taste before it is eaten.
