Once you try this easy technique, you’ll never want to cook brown rice any other way. You can scale this recipe up or down as needed. The basic ratio is 1 part brown rice to 6 parts water, and which yields 3 parts cooked rice. As written below, the recipe yields 3 cups cooked rice.
1 cup brown rice (short, medium or long grain brown rice will work, as long as it’s not a quick-cooking variety)
6 cups water
Salt, soy sauce or other desired seasonings, to taste
Bring a large pot of water to boil, using at least 6 cups water per 1 cup rice. Add the rice and boil, uncovered, for 30 minutes.
Drain off the remaining cooking water and return the rice to the pot. Cover the pot and let the rice rest, off the heat, for 10 minutes. Fluff, season as desired, and serve.
