Whole Grain Brown Rice

What about Brown rice? In its most natural state, rice arrives at our mill with an outer hull. And, just like long grain white rice, our brown rice is grown in the U.S.A., and is Kosher approved. Mahatma Brown rice is the rice grain with only the outer hull removed. The fiber and nutrient-dense bran layers cover the white inner part of the grain. These bran layers have a light brown color, and contribute a subtle nut-like taste and somewhat chewy texture.

Mahatma Brown rice contains naturally occurring rice bran oil. For increased shelf life, it is recommended that brown rice be refrigerated. Natural brown rice is a good source of whole grain dietary fiber which, as a part of a total diet plan, has been shown to reduce the incidence of some forms of cancer and coronary heart disease.

Mahatma Brown rice is naturally sodium free, cholesterol free, and has no saturated fat. Mahatma Brown rice is available in 1, 2, and 3 lb. sizes.

  • Cooking Directions

    On the Stove

    30 Minute Cooking Method:  To prepare up to 2 cups of brown rice bring 10 cups of water to a boil. Stir in rice. Return to a boil. Cook, uncovered for 30 minutes. If desired, 1 tablespoon tub margarine and 1 teaspoon of salt per cup of rice can be added to the water while cooking. Drain water. Serve.

    Traditional Method: In a saucepan, bring 2 1/2 cups of water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon tub margarine and 1 teaspoon salt per cup of uncooked rice, if desired. Stir in 1 cup rice. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes or until all water is absorbed. Yields 3-½ cups cooked rice

    In the Microwave

    Combine 1 cup brown rice, 3 cups water in a 2 ½ quart microwave-safe dish.  Microwave UNCOVERED on HIGH for 10 minutes.  REDUCE power to 50%, microwave uncovered 20 minutes.  Allow rice to sit for 5 minutes.  Fluff with a fork and serve.  Do not add salt or butter/margarine to the rice until AFTER the rice is cooked.

    NOTE:  These directions are based on cooking in an 1100 Watt microwave oven only.  Cooking in a higher power microwave oven is not recommended.  Cooking in a lower power microwave oven requires a longer time to cook.  If your microwave does not have variable power settings follow manufacturer's directions.
