I mix my rice. Try putting black & jasmine rice with it. Black rice has a nutty flavor.

I just generally just LOVE brown rice, I find it much tastier than white rice.

I would just look up rice recipes and then just use brown rice instead of white rice.

How to make brown rice tasty? Replace it with white rice. You get more nutrients from a sprig of broccoli than the hull of a rice grain, and if you're eating brown rice for the dietary fiber you're only getting a small amount of fiber for a whole lot of awful taste to overcome.

Seriously.


^^THIS!!! Brown rice tastes nasty!

Some great suggestions on here- thanks for asking the question! I toast chickpeas in a teaspoon of sesame oil, add it to the rice, and snip in some scallions.

I like the flavor of brown rice. It's one of the staples I keep in my house all the time. Just like any other carb, you have to limit your portions. On occasion, I sprinkle a little Mrs. Dash Original Blend on it.

top it with stir fried veggies? :) what i love to do is in a bowl, scramble 1 egg with 1 tbsp soy sauce, pour it into a pan and cook it then put it on top my rice. it is soo good!

other things that i think taste good with rice are
- soy sauce
- rice seasonings (check your local asian market)
- butter
- pepper & salt
- curry

pretty much anything really! :D what type of food do you like?

Best and easiest brown rice recipe EVER. My kids love it. On Mexican night, add some fresh cilantro for something different:

I found a great recipe in the clean eating magazine where you roast diced apple and butternut squash and and toss it with the cooked brown rice and serve it as kind of a pilaf style. It was VERY yummy! I also always cook brown rice in either veggie or chicken stock... but make sure it is low sodium.

Cook it in well seasoned water, or vegetable stock, add green onions, carrots, celery, and broccoli...then the "secret" bit, stir in some jasmine or lavender. Stir all this in to the pot and cook as normal (replacing the water with equal amount of veggie stock). It's excellent.

I think brown rice is already delicious. You want bland, eat white rice.
I like to put in a pinch of saffron threads when I turn the heat down.

Oh - do you cook your rice like this? Stir 1/2 part rice into 1 part boiling water, cover and simmer until all liquid is absorbed (about 45 minutes). I thought everybody cooked rice this way until my sister invited us to dinner and boiled the rice to mush. Bleh! Now that's bad!

I especially appreciate brown basmati and brown jasmine rice.

Please see instructions for cooking rice above; never hard, always fluffy.

Add olive oil, Lea and Perrins sauce, green onions (chives), cumin, dried white onion (or fresh), a chopped up tiny tomato and sometimes even cilantro. I also add salt to it. Rice without salt - blah.

I got this off of skinnytaste.com and have made it with white rice, cuz that's all I had, but I'm sure it would be great with brown rice too, since chipotle's brown rice is very good as well.
