The Scoop on Rice
Brown rice is healthier than white rice, right? But do you know that white rice is 10 times higher than brown rice in the B vitamin, folic acid? Since brown rice is higher in fiber, both have something great to offer so why not mix them?
Because brown rice takes a little longer to cook, about fourteen minutes more per cup, if you’re combining it with white rice, let it simmer for ten to fourteen minutes before adding the white. By combining these two grains, you get the added nutritional boost of white rice with the delicious chewy texture of brown. This combination looks great, tastes delicious, and adds variety to this most simple of side dishes.
