Less Caloric Rice

From an article in the Washington Post:

tinkering with a new way to cook rice that can reduce its calories by as much as 50 percent and even offer a few other added health benefits.

“What we did is cook the rice as you normally do, but when the water is boiling, before adding the raw rice, we added coconut oil—about 3 percent of the weight of the rice you’re going to cook,” said Sudhair James, who presented his preliminary research at National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) on Monday. “After it was ready, we let it cool in the refrigerator for about 12 hours. That’s it.”
