A few of years ago a friend told me that brown rice was better for a person’s health than white rice. I had eaten white rice ever since I was a kid. One of the things we did with white rice was put it in a bowl, pour milk over it and top it with a sugar and cinnamon mix. At school they served fried white rice with white chicken gravy over it. I liked rice fixed in these ways. But when I tried brown rice it took some getting use to. The other problem with brown rice is the time it takes to cook. Cooking brown rice in a pressure cooker will speed up the process but it’s still a hassle. So when I was shopping at Costco and came across Minsley Cooked Brown Rice, I snatch it up. And it’s organic. That sweetens the pot all the more for me. I try to buy as much organic as I can.

As I said earlier, it took some getting used to the taste of brown rice, but now I like it. I have put this rice in soups and have made Spanish rice with it. I also have put in under teriyaki chicken and orange chicken. I like the convenience of this rice. When I add it to soup I do it after the soup is hot. The rice is already cook and only needs to be heated up. The hot soup will heat the rice.
