  • Pulse the noodles in a food processor a couple of times until you have what looks like rice. 
  • Transfer the rice to a heated skillet. 
  • Add 1 cup of broth and simmer on medium heat until the liquid absorbs. Approx 8-10 minutes. If you want a less firm rice, add 1/4 cup more liquid and continue to cook until the liquid evaporates. For a more firm rice, decrease the liquid by 1/4 and decrease cooktime to desired tenderness.
