How To Cook Brown Rice

8 servings

When we learned how to cook brown rice this way, we loved it. We call it "pasta-style" brown rice. Cooking brown rice is actually easier than cooking pasta because you don't have to test it. Just cook 40 minutes and it is done.

16 oz brown rice
8 quarts water

In a large nonstick pot, bring water to a boil. Add brown rice and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-high. Cook, uncovered, for 40 minutes. Drain in a strainer.

Comments: This brown rice recipe works fine with short, medium, or long grain brown rice. You can also use red rice or black rice, which are higher in antioxidants than brown rice. If you want to cook a smaller amount of rice, that's fine. We always cook 16 oz. If we don't need that much, we freeze the extra in ziploc bags.

You can cook wild rice this way but it takes longer: about 60 minutes. It is easy to cook a brown rice/wild rice mixture. Boil the wild rice for 20 minutes, then add the brown rice and cook for 40 minutes more. Both are done perfectly.
