Perfect Brown Rice

From: Art of Gluten-Free Baking
Yield: 6 servings
NOTE: the ideal ratio of brown rice to cooking water is 2 parts rice to 3 parts water.


  • 2 C Short-grained brown rice
  • 3 C water

Cooking Directions

  1. Pour water into a heavy-bottomed saucepan set over medium heat.
  2. Cover and bring to a boil. Add rice, stir once to make sure rice is distributed.
  3. Place lid on pot, lower heat to a simmer.
  4. Let simmer until done--about 20 minutes. It\'s important that you do not bother the rice! No peeking! Let it cook in peace (this bit of wisdom comes from Mollie Katzen).
  5. Remove from heat and serve.
  6. Eat plain or with wheat-free tamari or with soup.
  7. To store: cool to room temperature and then place in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
