Rice comes in all forms and varieties. The kind of rice you use depends on the application. For sushi, you would use sushi grade rice. For this recipe, you can use almost any kind of rice, even the difficult short grain brown rice. The best thing is to experiment with different flavors and infusions. This simple Herbed Rice lends itself to pilafs, and just a quick lunch.
