We used the Lékué Rice and Grain Cooker for this Syn Free Mexican Rice. You could make it in a pan on the stove, but the Lékué Rice and Grain Cooker makes things so much quicker and easier I really would recommend you give it a go.

Those of you that are regular visitors to our website will probably know that we’ve used it in a previous recipe (which you can find here), and we were really impressed with the results. So much so that we use it every time we cook rice nowadays.

Which reminds me…..please excuse the state of the rice cooker in our photos. As I said, it gets used a lot, hence the yellow tinge! If you’re using it to make things like this Syn Free Mexican Rice it will start to discolour after a while. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t affect the performance or taste in the slightest.
