Toasting the rice beforehand lends a somewhat nutty flavor to the dish

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil, onions and celery in a saucepan large enough to hold the rice over medium heat.
  2. When the vegetables are tender and translucent, add the rice. Stir frequently until the rice is lightly toasted.
  3. Add the vegetable broth and set the heat to low. Simmer until liquid is absorbed. Approximately 30 minutes.

I have made this before and the toasting of the brown rice is what makes this. Besides giving a toasty flavor it seems to make it a lot fluffier (harder to do with brown rice). I use this technique/recipe as a base for any brown rice dish. Thanks LibraryAuLait, for posting. Roxygirl
