"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...

When you add rice and salt to water, simmer, and don't stir the result is perfect. But when you add the nuttiness of brown butter and the savory flavor of sage the result is, well, better than perfect.

Sage Brown Butter 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 40 to 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.

Place the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.

Melt the butter, and as it begins to turn brown, adjust the heat so that the butter browns but does not burn.

When the butter is lightly browned, add the sage and cook for about one minute.

Add the rice and green onion and sauté for about 5 minutes, tossing frequently.
