This is rice that has been hulled with bran intact. The bran lends chewy texture and nutty flavor. It requires a longer cooking time because the bran is a barrier to water. But, it keeps more nutrition content intact, and is higher in certain vitamins and minerals than white rice. Since the storage life of brown rice can be 6 months or more, keep a bag handy for quick meals. Brown rice is great for making veggie burgers, rice salads, and international dishes, such as this healthy Asian dish.
