Brown Rice

Brown rice is a whole grain with a mild, nutty flavor, and is more nutritious than white rice. We love to use it in salad, soup and risotto, but you can use brown rice as a substitute for white rice in just about any dish. Keep some simple pantry ingredients—salt and pepper, olive oil, and pre-made vegetable stock—handy and you can have a perfect brown rice weeknight supper (a stir fry, perhaps) on the table in no time. This simple recipe combines brown rice, toasted almonds and parsley for a spin on pilaf that would be delicious alongside roasted chicken or salmon. If you’re looking for the ultimate veggie burger, try this cheesy brown rice version. Packed with poblano chiles, scallions and peas, these vegetarian patties will be a new favorite.
