i started with 100% whole grain brown rice
2 cups of BR
i rinsed under cool water for about a minute and set to the side
chopped up one big carrots (just washed off, not pealed)
chopped half a white onion (just what i had, a yellow or even a red would have worked)
chopped 1 big celery sick
i combined all chopped items in a pot with a little olive oil and cooked them till the onions where see through
i then added 4 cups salt free chicken broth and set to boil
when all was boiling i added my rinsed brown rice and let it boil for about a minute
i gave it a few good stirs to make sure everything was mixed up
i turned the heat down to a simmer and put a lid on the pot and set the timer for 40minutes
when the timer went off i put a spoon in the rice and moved a little to the side to see if there was any broth left, there was so i cooked it a bit longer till all broth was gone. i believe i checked with a spoon 3 times.
you can add as much chopped veggies as you want, next batch i think i'll use more and even add in peas.
next task is to get my daughter to eat it. not that she will eat white rice either though.
