Brown Rice

Brown rice is a wonderful nutty flavored and healthy alternative to white rice.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vegetable or fish stock
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • salt, pepper

Preparation

In a medium sauce pan, over high heat bring the stock to a boil. Add the rice, return to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for approximately 40 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Stir with a fork to fluff.

Cooking times might vary for brown rice, depending on your particular package.  Instead of water, always use stock or broth if you have it, as it'll impart its wonderful flavors into the rice. Vegetable, fish, chicken, or meat are all great too.
