Brown Rice for Salad

Brown rice stays firm and cooks much faster if cooked like pasta in an ample amount of boiling water. A technique from Cook's Illustrated, published online July 1, 2013. Brown basmati is recommended, but any long-grain brown rice can be used.

  • 1 12 cups long grain brown rice

directions

  • Bring 3 quarts water to boil in large pot. Add rice and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender, 22 to 25 minutes.
