HOW TO ENJOY

Thoughtful cooking of brown rice preserves the maximum health benefits and a beautiful appearance of the finished dish.
Rinse the rice under running cold water until the flowing liquid is transparent.
After soaking the rice for 30-35 minutes in clean cool water, you will allow the grain and bran shell to swell evenly and, thus, prevent possible rupture of the shell and starchy part of the rice outside during cooking, preserving the visual appeal of the cereal ready-made.
Having chosen one of the methods of cooking brown rice : by completely absorbing water, or by cooking in a large amount of liquid, strictly follow the recommendations for each.
Total water absorption method:

  • In order for the brown rice to be cooked and the liquid completely evaporated during cooking, carefully add the proportion of two parts water to one part rice.
  • Be sure to use the cover.
  • Boiling in plenty of water:
  • The volume of water should significantly exceed the amount of cooked rice (5-6 times).
  • After cooking, discard the rice in a colander and rinse the cereal with water.
  • The pleasant buttery and soft, bread-like flavour of brown rice makes it a product that can be used in a wide variety of dishes, from appetizers and salads to desserts and drinks.
