Cooking Whole Grain Brown Rice

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page

I started buying my whole grain brown rice in bulk last year. It saves me money and it’s easy to prepare once you learn how. I confess I was used to making Minute Rice. The cost was so high compared to bulk rice. So I decided I would have to find a way to make the whole grain rice as good or better then the Minute Rice. I found many different methods of cooking the whole grain rice and found this recipe works best for me.

The brown rice is so much more flavorful then plain white rice and we all know it’s much better for us. Brown rice is considered a whole grain, but white rice is considered a refined starch. There is more information here about eating whole short grain brown rice. Give it a try. It’s easier to prepare then you think 🙂
