Top Chef Season 9 winner Paul Qui likes cooking his sushi rice with fresh ginger for more flavor.

  1. 2 cups short-grain sushi rice, rinsed well and drained
  2. 2 cups water
  3. 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger
  4. 1 teaspoon grapeseed oil
  1. 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.
