Brown Rice (Boiled)

It took a little while, but I have finally been successful switching our family over to whole grain pasta! I slowly upped the ratio of regular : whole grain pasta, and now I can do all whole grain and nobody flinches. Next on my list is switching to more brown rice, and this recipe is simple and delicious!

1 1/2 cups long grain brown rice
3 quarts water (NOT 3 cups!)
2 tsp salt
2 tsp vinegar or citrus juice

Fill a large pot with 3 quarts of water (again NOT 3 cups!) and add the salt. Bring to a boil. When the the water is boiling, add the rice and cook uncovered for 22-25 minutes, or until the rice is tender, stirring occasionally. Drain in a fine-mesh strainer.
If you are adding it to a salad, stir fry, etc, you will want to dump the rice onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, drizzle with citrus juice, and toss to combine.

Yield: about 3 cups.
