Here's a brown rice recipe collection which I hope will enable you to enjoy this valuable food.

Brown rice has a reputation for being austere.

But cooked carefully with the right ingredients to complement it, the reality can be very different.

These recipes are suitable for brown rice and will hopefully whet your appetite for brown rice. But you can, of course, use white rice in any of these recipes. As a part of green living, you will doubtless want to use mainly organic rice, whether you opt for white or brown.

How to cook brown rice

Brown Rice Recipe Collection: cooking brown rice to perfection

The first thing about cooking brown rice is that it definitely takes longer than white rice. Think about 30-40 minutes on average. You can bring this down substantially by using a .

You should always either weigh out the correct amount of rice or use measuring cups. Also, measure the water carefully.

This stops you ending up with gluey rice!

It is greener and meaner than cooking with a lot of water in an open pan - a method you sometimes see recommended. This way you use less fuel and you don't usually need to sieve the rice at the end.

A brown rice recipe for cooking rice well

MethodMeasure one cup of brown rice into a heavy bottomed pan. Add 2 and 1/2 cups of boiling water. Turn the heat on high and stir in the water thoroughly. A wooden spoon is ideal for this - or a chopstick.

Keep the rice simmering with the lid on until all the water is absorbed. With some pans you may need to keep the lid ajar to stop the whole lot boiling over. Simmer for about 20 - 30 minutes and check the condition of the rice ocassionally.

Switch off the heat and the rice should be perfectly ready to serve - fluffy and delicious.

If you have a good quality pan the rice should finish cooking to perfection even if you switch off the heat a little early.

Brown rice and vegetables

The next brown rice recipe has to be rice and veg. This dish is an absolute classic and is extremely easy and versatile.

I always feel very healthy and well nourished after eating this. The balance of protein to starch is good and the dish is filling without being stultifying.

Method

Prepare the rice as above.

Take a good selection of fresh garden vegetables - carrots, parsnip, celery, onions, kale or cabbage, peas and french beans, as you like.

Start with the onions (or leeks). Chop them small and sweat them in a litt...
