Unless making risotto, always cover cooking grains, for that very reason.


Yummo! This is a delicious recipe!! It took ages to cook..more than an hour for me so be warned.  I think it is best to put a lid on the pot when simmering so the rice absorbs the juices more (the recipe doesn't tell you whether you should cover the pot or not).  I added some vege stock powder for some extra taste.  Very VERY nice!!
