    Why not cook regular brown rice ahead of time and just pop it in the microwave. I don't like the texture of instant. For dinners - I cook up a batch and freeze it in half cup (1 serving) containers - 2 minutes in the microwave, I have hot rice. - 2/17/14

    I use regular brown rice I always cook batches and have it in the fridge. I mix in coconut milk and cinnamon, ginger, cloves etc. and raisins or craisins and dried fruit. It is different every time. I call it my healthier rice pudding. I add maple syrup or honey to sweeten.

    I used raisins, and cinnamon, rather than nutmeg,and mixed 2 tbsp. brown sugar in with the milk, rather than when I serve. Delicious eaten warm right after cooking. I can't wait to wake up and have it for breakfast! (I am the only one eating it, so I get o try it warm, cold, and also reheated.) - 1/28/14

  • I use quinoa instead of the brown rice and a tablespoon of agave syrup instead of the brown sugar. Delicious! - 3/21/14

  • Okay. Could be better.The only dried fruit I had on hand was cranberries and I'm thinking apples would be a better bet. Increasing the water and cook time just a hair helps with the texture, as does using the actual Uncle Ben's Instant Brown Rice. This is 1 time it pays to be brand picky. - 2/18/14
