Step 1: Rinsing the Rice (optional)

• 1 cup short-grain brown rice


Rinse the rice under cold water, if desired.

Note: We often soak our brown rice overnight. To do this, simply cover the rice with double the amount of water. Let sit overnight, or for at least 6 to 8 hours.

Step 2: Cooking the Rice

• 2 1/2 to 3 cups stock (or water)*
• 1 tsp sea salt


Place the rice, salt and stock into a medium-sized pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

*Note: If you have soaked the brown rice before hand, then drain the rice first and use only about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 cups of stock. You may also need to reduce the cooking time slightly.

Once the liquid comes to a boil, cover with a tight-fitting lid and turn the heat down to the lowest setting. Let cook for approximately 45 minutes, or according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

Step 3: Resting & Serving the Rice

• freshly ground black pepper (to taste)


Once done, remove from the heat, fluff with a fork and and let the rice rest for approx. 10 minutes.

Lastly, taste for seasoning — adding salt and pepper to taste. Gently fluff the rice one last time with a fork before serving.
