Easy Brown Rice

Batch cooking is great for when you are busy and need healthy options. Pronto.  I find that when I make a big batch of quinoa or brown rice it easily lasts for a few days and I can have numerous, simple dishes all under ten minutes!  

Brown rice packs more to the punch when compared with white rice.  It has not been processed and is still full of fiber, protein, and selenium.  It also leaves you with a good-full feeling as opposed to a heavy, dull-full feeling.

I would like to leave the recipe for brown rice with you today so that, if you fancy, you can try it for yourself.  It is quick and good for you too.  Do you have any go-to batch recipes or easily adaptable to brown rice? If so, do share ;)

Recipe for Easy Brown Rice

This recipe serves 4.

1 cup brown rice

2 cups of water

_____

Combine the water and rice into a pot. Bring to a boil over medium to high heat. Once at a boil, reduce the heat to a medium to low setting. Make sure to cover the pot and simmer until the liquid is completely integrated with the rice and the rice is just tender.  This should take about 40 minutes.  It'll be super tempting to open the lid and look at the rice but important steam will escape so try to not peak. Take the pot off of the heat and set to the side for 10 minutes. Then you can open the pot and fluff the rice with your fork.  And wala, easy brown rice!

Not that this has a whole lot to do with brown rice but I love this visual.  

I imagine feeling this ^^ on the inside and reflecting it outwards by positive thoughts, words, and actions.
