BROWN RICE – simplest recipe ever.
What is so perfect about this side dish? This nutritious whole grain contains 110 calories per half-cup serving, along with 2 grams each of protein and fiber. Brown rice is a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, thiamine, vitamin B-6 and niacin and also provides you with smaller amounts of iron and zinc.
I prefer the SHORT GRAIN BROWN RICE. It’s just fluffier and tastier for me. Try it out!
- 1 cup of short grain brown rice
- water / sea salt
I don’t use measurements for water. I simply boil filtered water with a teaspoon of salt for taste. Once the water boils, I throw in the brown rice and lower the heat to simmer. If you like your rice “al dente” (meaning firmer in texture), monitor it and pull out of the water after approximately 15-20 minutes. If you prefer a fluffier texture, leave a bit longer to cook in the water. Once ready, drain, fluff with a wooden spoon and serve. You can store the rice in a container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Bon appétit =)
