Have you tried brown Basmati rice?

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Regular brown rice aint got nothin' on this little gem!

Brown Basmati Rice, also known as popcorn rice because of it's awesome flavor has 2 grams of fiber per serving! The flavor totally rocks and goes with anything. Teriyaki, American, Spanish, whatever!

Cook with 1/2 or all chicken broth for extra yumminess! be careful not to burn though because brown rice has to cook for so long, it's easy to burn if you don't have enough water or turn the stove down to low.

Happy eating!!!

    My rice cooker stops when the rice is done and goes into 'warming' phase. It is also the worlds smallest rice cooker (2-4 cup) and it's perfect for one person, couple of meals. I just put the rice and liquid in and hit the button. You do have to watch the liquid though. I agree with OFFDREA about the 2:1 ratio, but a little extra liquid if you're using broth or something other than H20. Don't be afraid to open the lid and stir to check the liquid level!

    I heart brown basmati! White rice was the one thing I would not give up because I disliked brown rice so much, until I found this! It makes the best fried rice with coconut oil. So tasty. I have a rice cooker and I cook mine 1 parts rice 2 and a bit parts water and it turns out great every time.

    Hey Golfy! How many times do you have to re-turn your rice cooker on to get it done? or will it just keep going until all the water is gone?

    LOVE IT!! It does take about 1/3 extra liquid than what the directions call for in my rice cooker. but once I figured that out, it's all good!!
