How to cook brown rice
Out of the many ways there are to cook rice, I alternate between two: like pasta and like a grain. To make pasta-like rice, I bring water to a boil and cook the rice until tender, tasting occasionally after 30 minutes to get the right texture.
The other option is combining 1 part rice to 2 parts water. Boil, then cover and simmer on the lowest setting for upwards of 45 minutes. I like to refer to this chart put together by Lundberg Farms that has all the cooking options with instructions.
How to use brown rice
Rice is extremely versatile. I use it as a base for curries and stews, in soups, and for making vegetable cakes/patties. Fried rice and sushi are also staples for its use.
How to store brown rice
Brown Rice, whether the grain or flour, is best stored in airtight containers in a cool place. It can be stored up to a year in the freezer or 6 months in the pantry. Brown rice flour is best stored in the freezer and will last up to 6 months. If the grains or flour have a rancid smell when you open the bag, toss and buy fresh.
