I mentioned in a previous post my ‘baked brown rice’. Truth be told, it’s not really mine. I got the idea from Alton Brown on the Food Network. Mine or not, the idea is brilliant.
I was never a fan of brown rice. I’d tried to make it and it was always too raw or too mushy. Enter baked brown rice. This is seriously fool-proof and the end result is fluffy, nutty brown rice that will covert you to the healthy stuff forever. My son mows it in and many a dinner guest has been won over. Sure it cooks for an hour but, this is totally unattended leaving you to cook something else (or to put your feet up with a nice glass of vino and that book you’ve been wanting to read).
I always use brown basmati rice. I soak it in water for at least an hour but, putting it in a sieve and running cold water over it will also help. This rinses off the excess starch helping you avoid sticky gummy rice.
Give it a try and let me know what you think. You might just decide you prefer brown rice too!
