Brown Rice in Half the Time


We love brown rice, but it can take almost an hour to cook! Here’s a way to cut your brown-rice cooking time in half…

To save time and still have great texture, cook your brown rice like pasta! Bring about one quart of water in a medium-size pot to boil. Add a heaping half cup of brown rice and about one-half teaspoon of salt…and that’s pretty much it. Taste your rice after about 15 minutes or so to see if it’s done. Our brown rice usually takes about 25 minutes…we like the rice cooked through with still a little chew. Drain your cooked rice through a colander or mesh strainer like pasta. Delicious!
