Brown rice is boring as batshit. It doesn’t have the street cred of activated buckinis or the ability to transform you into Wonder Woman like quinoa, and it takes fucking forever to cook. White rice? Boom, done in 10 minutes. Brown rice? Forget about watching grass grow, you’ll need to mow your lawn twice by the time it’s done.
And it tastes like cardboard soaked in clag glue.
Turns out I’ve been cooking brown rice wrong my entire life. Did you know that if you fry it up before boiling, it morphs into the food of the gods?
All you have to do is sautee it in a bit of oil for a few minutes until it starts smelling nutty, then dump it into the rice cooker (with a rice to water ratio of 1:2) and proceed as normal. It still takes it’s sweet fucking time, but you’ll be rewarded with delicious carbs to pad out all of your meals that a) doesn’t cost one of your kidneys b) is healthy ‘n shit.
