I had some brown rice with dinner last night. It wasn't as bad as last time. I think it may have to do with it being a more pricier brand? Maybe because I over seasoned the meat and veggies so I didn't mind the rice as much? Maybe because I was hungry? :) Don't know..and I really don't care. I hope I am able to tolerate it because I have leftover rice portioned off in 1 serving containers that I have to eat!

Thanks you guys. I guess I just have to slowly add brown rice to my meals until I get used to it! Ooh, I am not looking forward to it at all!!! So..my mental plan is to have it in place of white rice BUT keep it mind that it is a side dish...not rice per say. That way I am not expecting the familiar rice taste and texture. Wish me luck! :)

LOL, Gina!
I grew up in Texas, in a home full of beef and potatoes. When I moved to Kauai, I learned, yes, learned to like the white, sticky kine rice.

Other than the San Fran Rice-a-Roni, I'd never had wild or brown rice. These days, I pre-cook a batch of all brown rice (or barley) and mix it with the sticky kine. Start with what you feel tastes OK, then add more. Lucky you that your hubby likes brown rice!

I didn't use to be a fan of brown rice either, but now that's all I eat!
I first started eating it with stir fry - lots of veggies with sauce and a little bit of rice so I didn't really notice it. Then this past summer I moved onto eating it with veggies and some soy sauce. And now I'm ok with it, I don't really eat rice just by itself, I add veggies to it just leave out the soy sauce.
Oh it works great with beans and rice, if you eat that. Do you like wild rice, I like mixing wild rice in with the brown rice.

Hey Girl... YUCK!! I hate brown rice too, it's just soooo not like a nice bowl of white rice with some shoyu to accompany your meal!! MMMM.. ;)

Anyway, what we tried was adding a 5 or 10lb bag of brown rice to a 20lb bag of white rice... It makes it a little healthier more bearable to eat, KINDA!!

If you can get used to it you can slowly add more brown rice? Personally, I don't know if I can just eat brown rice... it's gross.

Growing up in Hawaii (especially in a japanese household) my family eats white sticky rice every single day. I KNOW that brown rice is so much more healthier and filling. I just can't get over the taste and chewy-ness of it! Hubby loves brown rice, I make it for him on occasions and he encourages me to eat it...but I am so put off by it, it makes me angry! LOL

One of my goals for 2010 is to finally eat brown rice with pleasure! Please share your tips, advices, recipes with me so I can get this nasty feeling towards brown rice over with! :) Thanks!
