Plain ol’ brown rice

The local health-food shop stocks some seriously tasty organic short-grain brown rice. This recipe makes enough for 3-4 meals, easy.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/3 cups short grain brown rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tbsp oil (peanut, whatever)

Method

  • Rince uncooked rice three times and drain well.
  • Put the 4c water on to boil in the kettle. This will boil separately from the rice to start.
  • Heat oil over med high heat in a lidded sauce pan. Saute uncooked rice for a few mins, stirring constantly.
  • Pour boiling water over rice. Give a quick stir, then cover and turn heat to low (I just put it on minimum). Cook for 45 mins undisturbed.
  • After 45 mins, turn off heat and let sit for 5-10 mins.

I’m not a huge fan of regular white rice, but this stuff is great. Sauteing the uncooked rice in the oil for a few mins brings out a nice rich, nutty flavour.

  1. We don’t use brown rice but we do use a non-white rice (it is a light tan color). We generally mix it with white rice sort of 30:70 tan:white and it makes for what we think is a better bowl of rice.
