Though it requires more cooking time than our white rice recipe, fragrant, nutty brown rice is just as easy to prepare. For a quick and healthy dinner, use leftover brown rice in this stir-fry with gai lan and shiitake mushrooms or pair with our kabocha squash recipe.

Instructions

  1. 1Place the rice in a fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold water until the water runs clear.
  2. 2Place the measured water in a medium saucepan with a tightfitting lid and bring to a boil over high heat. Add the rice and salt (if using), stir to incorporate, cover, and reduce the heat to low. Simmer undisturbed until the rice is tender, about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit covered to steam for 10 minutes more. Fluff with a fork and serve.
