Ingredients

    2 C brown rice
    4 C water

Directions

Put water and brown rice into a microwave safe dish, leaving at least 2 inches between the top of the water and the rim of the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Microwave on high for 7 minutes, then on 50 % power for 20 minutes. Let sit without moving for 5 minutes. Then open the plastic wrap (CAREFUL! hot steam) and stir, allowing to sit another 5 minutes.

Absolutely fool proof and faster than most methods.

You can do this with white rice also, just reduce the 50% power cooking time to 15 minutes.

    It worked and tasted fine. Mine boiled out underneath the plasic wrap and made a mess in the microwave. But, I'd make it again. - 1/23/10

    I made this tonight for dinner, since there are only 2 of us I halved the amounts for both rice and water. Having read the comments I put a double layer of paper towels under the bowl and thus avoided a mess. - 5/12/10

    Great recipe! It was extremely simple!! Instead of using a plastic container I used a glass oven bowl with its glass lid and chicken broth instead of just water fir more taste!! I love how the rice came out!! - 4/7/10
