Brown Rice

Thank goodness for rice. The rich nutty taste of brown Rice, not to be compared, is a whole natural grain and is more nutritious than white rice. One cup of cooked long grain brown rice contains 84 mg of magnesium compared to 19 mg found in a cup of white rice. However, we can have too much so use your hand as your guide. What fits into your palm is enough for one serving. Typically, on Sunday I will prepare 3 cups of uncooked rice in a low sodium veggie or chicken broth. NEVER uncover your rice until all the liquid has absorbed. My mom taught me that. Keeping rice on hand is perfect for some of my recipes but also a quick way to make a meal. Top with my black bean salsa and you are ready to eat. Cooked brown rice can keep in the air tight container up to 4 days.
