  • Do you add water or broth or cook them dry? There is no liquid mentioned here. - 11/17/08

    Sorry about that. You need to add 2 cups of water for every 1 cup of dried rice or lentils, I cut back a bit on the water (by about ½ cup) when using lots of veggies because as they cook down they will increase the liquid in this.
