  • Checked this out due to oriental rice comment. Seems to me that tossing the water, you are loosing vitamins. When I cook brown rice, I use 1 cup rice to 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to boil, turn burner to lowest setting, cover, set timer for 30 minutes, turn burner off & let rest for 30 minutes. - 6/7/09

  • I looked at your recipe as I saw your comment on the oriental rice recipe.... I'll try this out, as I don't even waste my time with white rice anymore, but often find if I'm not paying attention, I burn the bottom and run out of water!! Thanks for the post. I'll likely enjoy this variation. - 6/6/09
