With all the aroma and flavor of Thai Jasmine Rice, our Carolina® Jasmine Brown Rice has all the added benefits of whole grains. These Non-GMO Project Verified grains are hearty and satisfying as their germ and bran are still intact, and certified by the Whole Grains Council, making this product the ideal long grain variety for serving with stir-fried vegetables and meats as well as other grilled or fried foods.
Difference Between White and Brown Jasmine Rice?
- Aroma: Jasmine brown rice will fill your kitchen with that same enticing aroma you love from traditional Jasmine white rice.
- Texture: While both white and brown rice grains cook up light, fluffy and separate, when cooked, the brown version — with the intact outer shell — is firmer and slightly chewier.
- Flavor: Although it has hints of that sweet jasmine flavor, the whole grain variety has a subtle nutty flavor.
Stove Instructions: In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in rice. If desired, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 teaspoon salt per cup of uncooked rice. Cover. Reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until all water is absorbed. For drier rice, use 1/4 cup less water. Or, for moister rice, use ¼ cup more water.
Microwave Instructions: In a 2 quart microwave safe dish, combine 2 cups water with 1 cup rice. Cover and microwave on HIGH for 5 minutes. Reduce setting to 50% power, microwave for 15 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes. It is recommended that only 1 cup of rice be prepared in the microwave at a time. Microwave ovens vary. Cooking times are approximate.
While Jasmine Brown Rice boasts plenty of taste and aroma, you can still turn the flavor up a few notches with some simple pantry staples.
- –Liquids: You may be used to using water when cooking rice, but try substituting a different liquid to ensure that extra flavor is packed into each and every grain. For a chicken and rice recipe, cook brown jasmine rice in chicken broth. For an Asian-inspired dish, combine cooking water with liquid aminos or soy sauce for that extra oomph!
- –Salt: Table salt or Kosher will give the taste a boost. As already seasoned stock or broth contains sodium, skip this step if you’re cooking grains in them.
- –Herbs: Herbs will not only add taste but aroma to your rice. Sprinkle dried spices into cooking water or sprinkle fresh herbs on top to add a little something extra to your dish.
