Rice Cooking 101
How to make the perfect Brown Rice
Do not be afraid of the lack of measurements here!
Making rice is so easy once you get the hang of it, and brown rice should be a staple in your diet!
Get a fine mesh strainer and put the amount of rice you want to make in it. Rinse the rice very well.
Put rinsed rice in a large saucepan, and add a pinch of sea salt, and a few drops of olive oil (I mean literally a few drops, like 1/2 a tsp at most)
Rinse a one inch piece of kombu seaweed and place that in the pot. This is optional, but adding a piece of kombu to your rice infuses your rice with rich nutrients, and does not effect the flavor!
Now fill up your pot with enough water so that when you touch the tip of your finger to the very top of the rice in the pot, the water level goes to your first knuckle (the one closest to the water)
Bring Rice to a boil, cover, and simmer (for brown rice) for about 45 minutes.
