1 c brown rice of your choice
3 c water
Rinse rice. Combine all ingredients in a medium sauce pan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover, and cook for 60 minutes. Please don’t lift the lid to give a peek or stir or the rice will not cook evenly.
For extra favor consider toasting rice in non-stick pan before adding water. It will make rice puffy.
Brown rice is the whole rice kernel with its bran intact, and unlike white rice it retains most of its B vitamins and vitamin E. There are many different types of rice.
