Cooking brown rice perfectly

Brown Mountain Rice

Brown Mountain Rice

TheVillageGreenShop sells organic brown mountain rice.  It is rounder in shape, lighter in colour and flavourful and fluffier if cooked perfectly.  In order to achieve the same quality we would like to share some tips from our favourite healthy cooking site Eating Well for some advise.

How to Cook Brown Rice & Wild Rice: Rice to Liquid Ratio, Time and Directions

 

Grain
(1 Cup)
Liquid
(water/broth)
Directions Yield
Brown Rice 2 1/2 cups Bring rice and liquid to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 40-50 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork. 3 cups
109 calories; 23 g carbohydrate; 2 g protein; 2 g fiber.
Wild Rice At least 4 cups Cook rice in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water until tender 45-55 minutes. Drain. 2-2 1/2 cups
82 calories; 17 g carbohydrate; 3 g protein; 1 g fiber.

Completing the process is the resting period for at least 5 minutes with the lid on. Food-science expert Harold McGee says this “resting period” allows the grains of rice to cool and become firm, so that the rice doesn’t break when scooped from the pot. Once rested, fluff rice with fork, and you should have a light and aromatic final product!
