Herbed Brown Rice

So...I have been wanting to WANT to eat more brown rice...instead of white rice. White rice is much lower in nutritional content than brown naturally...this journey to health seeking mama wants to eat the brown! However, as many of you probably know...brown itself is very icky to many people. Here is a recipe that even my husband loved! I made a LARGE LARGE batch of the I can eat it with lunch! However, I will give you the regular sized portion.


1 1/4 cups vegetable or chicken stock.
1 TBSP minced garlic
1/2 TBSP oregano
1/2 TBSP marjoram
1/2 TBSP thyme
dash of cayenne pepper
dash of garlic salt
1 bag of boil in a bag brown rice

***You can experiment with the herbs...but this seems to leave it flavorful while not overdoing it on anything.***

In a large pot bring to boil all ingredients. Remove rice from bag and pour into boiling liquid. Allow to boil on low to medium until all liquid is absorbed. Stirring Occasionally.

Keep in mind that brown rice is not going to have as soft a texture. In fact it is very "nutty" in flavor and texture alike. :) Hope you enjoy!
