Stir fry it with some olive oil, soy sauce and veggies. Add your chicken, beef or egg whites and there you go. Give it a try.

When you guys have your brown rice is it crunchy in a way??? I cooked mine and it was kinda crunchy, I cooked it for long enough. Also, is brown rice not sticky like white rice and others??? I tried mine and its almost like its hard and doesnt stick together

I eat mine with chicken and salsa. Or some shrimp cooked in a lot of seasoning.

Your brown rice shouldn't be crunchy. If you cooked it long enough, maybe you burnt off too much water, try lower heat.
I use a Lundberg Quick Brown Rice, which is a long grain brown rice that cooks in 15min. I get it at Whole Foods Market.
I sometimes add chicken broth to my rice when cooking. Gives it a little more flavor.

cool, I will try it with more water and less heat, and that chicken broth sounds like a good idea.

i cook half a cup of brown rice, mix in about 10 oz of canned chicken breast, and then load up on the hottest hot sauce i can find. i'm sweatin by the time i'm done eating.

I use bouloun <`~(spelling)cubes, either chicken or beef, just remember it adds more salt

bouillon it's french
I agree, brown rice cooked aldenté (ie: not mushy, still has a bit of a crunch to it) is good with a ton of small shrimp (good protein!) and a megaton of garlic!

I have the same problem when I cook brown rice, I never can get it to have the right softness. Half the time it comes out too fucking hard or to soft and then it sticks all over the pot and is a pain in the ass to clean and get out.

chili and garlic! just can't get enough!

i guess ur brown rice wasn't fully cooked yet..brown rice is different from regular white rice..besides the glycemic index..brown rice is far more harder. Thus, u need to cook it longer..watch the fire and keep it low. whenever the water dries up..add in some more..till the rice is soft and tender..

I gotta better idea.... boil brown rice in water.... when finished and u start eating, dont even think about smelling it just put it ur mouth and swollow, no smell, no taste no problems lol

and yes i totally agree with eggplant, brown rice is a bit diff to regular white rice it does take longer to cook, and it is a lot harder. like he said just keep an eye on the stove and keep adding water till it gets 2 da softness u want it 2 b.

I prefer white rice over brown when it comes to flavor, my body tolerates it to so I use it instead of brown rice.

Basmanti (sp) brown or white rice all the way for me, of course that is when I can have it. Man I miss having my rice.
Chicken both and one table spoon of butter. Cook it for twenty minutes (Med. low heat) then turn the burner off and DO NOT touch the lid for fifteen more minutes...........it'll be perfect.
