Organic Long Grain Brown Rice

Gluten-Free | Non-GMO | Kosher

First grown in China thousands of years ago, rice has travelled the globe to become a staple food in cultures the world over. This is no surprise as rice is affordable and rich in carbohydrates that give you energy. Depending on how it is processed, rice has different properties and can be used for different dishes. Long grain brown rice has been left mostly intact with only the outer husk removed. This means most of its nutritional value and pale brown color has been retained, adding visual interest, texture, and flavor to your favorite rice dishes.

Our long grain brown rice cooks up light and fluffy just like our long grain white rice. However, the flavor is slightly nuttier and robust. It can be used the same way as our white rice and be served with curries, stews, or as a porridge, but it’s texture, taste, and slight chewiness makes it fantastic in pilafs and cold salads.

Basic Cooking Instructions:

Rinse the rice before use. Bring 1 ¾ cups of water and 1 cup of rice to a boil. Add 1 tsp. salt. Cover saucepan with tight-fitting lid and cook on low heat for 40 minutes. Remove from heat, leaving lid on, and let stand covered for 10 minutes or until water is absorbed. Yields 3 cups.
