"Rice is the best, the most nutritive and unquestionably the most widespread staple in the world." -Auguste Escoffier, 19th century French chef
By mincing the shallot very finely and adding it to the rice while it sits and continues to steam, it will actually cook slightly. Combined with the olive oil and oregano, this makes for a fragrant and simple side dish.

|2 1/4 cups||water|
|1/2 cup||long grain brown rice|
|1 small||shallot (minced)|
|2 tsp||extra virgin olive oil|
|1 Tbsp||fresh oregano|
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 35-45 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 add the shallot, olive oil and oregano. Toss well and cover. Let stand for about 5 minutes, then serve.
