  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ cup fresh dill
  • ½ cup shelled edamame
  • 1 cup Jasmine rice or Basmati rice
  • cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt


  • Add butter and oil in a medium-sized Dutch oven. Saute the dill and edamame for a few minutes.
  • Rinse and drain the rice to remove excess starch. Add rice to the same pot. Cook, while stirring for a few additional minutes.
  • Add the water and salt and stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, then cover the pot with the lid and simmer for twenty to 30 minutes minutes. Stir at least once while cooking.
  • Fluff with a fork before serving.


  • For the perfect rice, use 1 to 1-¼ cups of water for each cup of rice.
  • If you prefer stickier rice, add more water.
  • Be sure to use Jasmine rice, instead of Basmati for stickier rice.
  • If you love dill, you can use as much as one cup of fresh dill in this recipe.
  • Dill weed should not be used to replace the fresh dill in this recipe. It won't do the recipe justice.
  • If you're not worried about calories. Add an additional tablespoon of butter.
