Wash and rinse the brown rice with water until it runs clear
In a wide bottom pot with medium heat pour water and oil. Bring the water to a boil. The ratio of rice to water here I have used is 1:2. This delivers soft rice once it is cooked.
Once the water starts to boil, add the washed brown rice and give it a good mix
Allow the rice to boil for 5 to7 minutes stirring on and off
Now simmer the heat to low, close the pan with its lid, and cook the rice for about 40 to 45 minutes. Or until the water is absorbed completely
Open the lid and the rice should be cookes now. Switch off the heat and close the lid and allow the rice to rest for another 10 minutes. This will help to absorb any leftover water in the rice
Now open the lid and fluff the brown rice with a fork
Serve this perfectly cooked Brown rice with your favorite roasted vegetables, baked or roasted dishes, chicken, salmon, or shrimp for lunch and dinner
