Top Chef Season 9 winner Paul Qui likes cooking his sushi rice with fresh ginger for more flavor.
2 cups short-grain sushi rice, rinsed well and drained
2 cups water
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
Put all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over very low heat until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 25 minutes. Let stand off the heat for 5 minutes, then fluff the rice with a fork and serve.
