To start, you’ll need quality rice like Organic Brown Rice and purified water or organic apple juice. If you want to cut down on the cook time of your brown rice, try soaking your rice for 2-8 hours before cooking. Simply place in a bowl covered in water and let it sit.
Once your rice has soaked, drain the water, or if your rice hasn’t been soaking, simply rinse it out in a strainer. Place your rice and juice in a bowl and bring to a boil. Once boiling, let it simmer for 45 minutes or 20 minutes if it has soaked.
Once your rice is fully cooked, blend it together with an immersion blender until it reaches the desired consistency. It’s quite simple and with just a few ingredients, may require a bit of patience but feeding your family quality meals is always worth it.
