Easy Brown Rice



Serving size

1/2 cup cooked rice
45 minutes
Easy Brown Rice


1 cup Brown rice
2 1/4 cup Water (or no salt added vegetable stock)


Put the rice and water in a medium sauce pot, on medium-high heat, and stir.

Bring the liquid to a boil.

Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and cover the rice.

Simmer the rice for about 30 minutes. At that point, taste the rice to see if it is still crunchy. If so, check for water on the bottom of the pot; add ¼ cup of water if all the water has been absorbed and continue to cook. If it is cooked and the water is absorbed, turn off the heat.

When the rice is a good consistency, turn off the heat and keep it covered for 10 minutes.

After sitting, fluff the rice with a fork, and enjoy!
