Brown rice

Number served:

Ingredients:

  • brown rice (cooked) - 2 cup
  • soy sauce - 2 tablespoon

Directions:

Cook rice as per directions. If you buy your brown rice in bulk at a health food store (a good idea!) add 1 part rice to 2 parts water and cook in either a rice cooker or a pan with a tightly fitting top - do not lift the lid while rice is cooking.

If you are not on a low sodium diet, add soy sauce to taste.
