Savory Brown Rice

It's so easy to make a really delicious brown rice, or any rice, for that matter.

First, finely chop 2 medium onions and a stalk of celery. Wilt them in a large sauce pan with a generous amount of olive oil.

Then stir in the dry rice. When the rice is thoroughly coated with the oil and vegetable mixture, stir in sea salt and 2 large pinches of dry thyme for added flavor.

Finally, add the recommended (or desired) amount of water to the pan. Bring to a boil; cover; and turn down to a simmer till rice is done.

"Perfect Rice" for me is of a slightly nutty texture. I usually use less water and cook it for a shorter period of time than is recommended on the package.  To each his own.

One of the nice things about this recipe is the kitchen will smell of savory thyme, as though you were cooking a Thanksgiving stuffing.  And with so little effort  ^_^.


  1. going to try it this way myself, Daphne--I do something similar with barley, using butter, mushrooms, and garlic, toasting the barley a bit, then adding water and cooking it until done. Yum!

  2. Sounds divine! I've been wondering what else to do with barley… Thx :D
