Basic Brown Rice
- 1 cup brown rice
- 2 cups of water or broth
- Salt and pepper to taste
Rinse rice in a bowl of cool water and strain.
Place all ingredients in a pot with a tight fitting lid. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and let simmer for about 45 minutes. Check the rice every 5 minutes after the first 30 minutes to prevent burning. Remove from heat and let stand 10 minutes. Fluff with fork and serve.
