How To Cook Brown Rice

Soaking the rice for an hour before cooking ensures a softer rice and shorter cooking time.  Plan on making more so you can make some fried rice or freeze extras.

2 cups brown rice
3 1/2  cups water

Soak rice in water to cover for at least 1 hour. Rinse rice with water 4-5 times; drain off water. Place rice and 3 1/2 cups water in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and partially cover. 

Cook 35 minutes, until water is absorbed and rice is soft.  Turn off heat and let sit, covered, for 10 minutes before serving.

Makes 7 cups cooked rice.
