Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 2½ cups water
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ teaspoon (20 grinds) freshly ground black pepper
Instructions
  1. Place the rice, water and salt in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan with a tight-fitting lid. Bring to a boil over high heat. As soon as water boils, give rice a quick stir, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 45-50 minutes, until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
  2. minutes before rice should be done, measure out your butter and Parmesan, leaving them both outside the fridge, at room temperature.
  3. When rice is done, turn heat off and allow it to rest, covered, for 10 minutes. Then, with a fork, stir in the butter, Parmesan and black pepper.
  4. A nice variation is to add ½ cup of fresh chopped herbs - anything you have and like - parsley, cilantro, oregano, rosemary etc.
Notes
If you prepare rice in advance and cool it in the fridge for a day or two, then reheat, you'll enjoy the benefits of resistant starch.
