Whole-grain brown rice is cooked in delicious stock. Adding stock is a great way to infuse even more flavor into this nutritious and hearty 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.
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.
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.
This rice can also be cooked using the oven method or the rice cooker method.
