INGREDIENTS: 
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 tsp. salt
DIRECTIONS: 

Rinse rice in a strainer under cold running water for 30 seconds. In a large pot over high heat, bring four cups water to a boil.  Once boiling, add rice and stir once.  Reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. After 30 minutes, rice should be almost tender but still have a little bite.  Strain rice over the sink.  Let drain for 10 seconds, then return rice to pot. Do not place it back on the heat.  Immediately cover pot with tight-fitting lid and set aside to allow the rice to steam for 10 minutes. Once ready, uncover rice, fluff with a fork, and season with salt to taste.
