Whole Grain Rice Basics
Recipe Type: Main
Cook Time: 
Total Time: 
Serves: 3-4
  • 1 cup whole grain rice (brown, red, or black)
  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • ¼ tsp. kosher or sea salt
  • 1 tsp. olive or vegetable oil
  1. Place rice in a large water with 3 cups of purified water. Soak for three hours. Drain soaking water and rinse rice using a sieve. Transfer rice into a pot. Add 1 ¾ cup of water, and if you feel like experimenting a broth of choice (vegetable, mushroom, chicken, etc), salt, and oil. Over high heat bring water to a boil (about 6 minutes), reduce heat to medium-high, and continue cooking, uncovered until most of the water had been absorbed (about 15 minutes). Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for another 10-15 minutes depending on the varietal, brown rice taking the least, black taking the most amount of time.
  2. Once rice is cooked, tender with a bite (no hard parts!), remove from heat and let rest for five minutes covered. When ready to serve, fluff with a fork and serve while still hot.
