    2 1/4 cups water

    2 teaspoons sugar

  • Excellent. I used seasoned rice vinegar instead of the white wine vinegar and sugar. I think the calories are off though. I think the calories were calculated using 1 cup of cooked brown rice instead of 1 cup of dry brown rice which is what you start with. - 8/19/09

  • Very good! Will definitely make again. I did not have white wine vinegar, so I used mild rice vinegar, and was still delicious! - 7/30/08
