Brown Rice Recipes

 Brown Rice Recipes - Healthy and Delicious - Easy To Cook 


A Mediterranean Brown Rice RecipeWe absolutely love experimenting with brown rice recipes. It's such a versatile food, with its mild, nutty flavour, and the health benefits from eating it regularily are legendary.
It contains far more nutrients than white rice because, in the milling process, only the outside husk(bran)is removed, whereas all of the husk layers and the germ are removed from the white, leaving mainly starch and little nutrient.
Brown rice is a great source of B vitamins and minerals, helps prevent different cancers, aids in the lowering of cholestrol, the risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It is full of healthy heart fibre.....and much more.
Why not include this in your own Mediterranean diet it's healthy and full of goodness.
Eat well - feel full and satisfied and lose those excess pounds without undue effort.

Brown Rice Recipes Easy Cooking Method

Ingredients   

  • Brown rice (whichever type you prefer) short or long grain
  • Water – use at least four cups of water for every one cup of rice(or one part rice to 4 parts water)
  • Salt – to taste

Or if you are short of time why not use a rice cooker.

Method
  1. Rinse rice in a strainer under cold running water for a minute, swirling the rice around with your hand. 
  2. Meanwhile, bring water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. 
  3. When water comes to the boil, add the drained rice, stir it once. 
  4. Reduce the heat to medium and boil, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  5. After 30 minutes, pour the rice into the strainer over the sink. 
  6. Let the rice drain for 10 seconds, until most of the water has gone, then return it to the pot, off the heat. 
  7. Immediately cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid and put it to one side to allow the rice to steam for 10 minutes. (If your pot lid isn’t extremely tight, place a piece of aluminum foil or baking parchment over the pot then place the lid on top of it. This makes a tight seal and allows the rice to steam and absorb any liquid that is left.)
  8. After ten minutes, uncover rice, fluff up with a fork, and season with salt to taste.
  9. Use straight away or you can store it in a plastic container in the fridge and use whenever you like...it keeps for about 5 days.
