"Rice is the best, the most nutritive and unquestionably the most widespread staple in the world."
-Auguste Escoffier, 19th century French chef

The refrigerator light goes on...

There are so many varieties of brown rice on the market in America today. I have become very partial to brown jasmine rice. Whatever brown rice you choose, the touch of butter as flavoring along with the floweriness of the parsley makes this recipe a great accompaniment for almost any dish.


Brown Rice with Parsley

Servings: 2 | Serving size: 1/2 cup cooked rice

Cooking Time: 30 Minutes

This recipe can be multiplied by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8.

The cooked rice doesn't keep well.

2 1/4 cups water
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup long grain brown rice
2 Tbsp parsley (coarsely chopped)
2 tsp unsalted butter

In a medium sauce pan, heat the water and salt. When the water boils, stir in the brown rice.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for about 45 minutes.

Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.

When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

Just before serving, add the butter and parsley and fold gently until the butter melts. Serve.
