Steamed Brown Rice

Recipe by Galley Wench

I love brown rice, it's a classic dish that can be dressed up or down to fit occasion. This recipe comes from the Fiddlehead Cookbook.

This turned out perfect! I halved the recipe and it was done in half the time, how can you beat that!?! I only added salt because I am serving the rice with Turkey and Sausage Jambalaya which is highly seasoned. Believe it or not this is my first time making brown rice. It's a winner! Thanks a bunch Galley Wench!
