Cumin Rice recipe from Dr. Gourmet

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 30 - 40 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.

Add the cumin and green onion and fold together gently.

Re-cover and let stand, covered, for 3 minutes before serving.
