How to cook grains
Updated On: Aug 14, 2013

Have you ever wanted to try cooking something other than white rice but didn't know how to do it?

Brown Rice - 1 cup of brown rice to 2 cups of water.  Rinse your rice a few times and add the required amount of water (2 to 1).  Bring it to a boil, reduce and simmer for 45 min.  Yes, I said 45 min.  No peeking.  After 45, check and fluff with fork. 

Millet - 1 cup millet to 2 cups water or broth.  Put in into a pot together, bring to a boil and back to simmer for 20 min tightly covered.  Check to see if liquid is absorbed.  Let stand 5 min and fluff.

Bulgur Wheat - 1 cup bulgur to 2 1/2 cups water or broth.  Bring water or broth to a boil, remove from heat, add bulger, stir and let sit 30 minutes.  Strain remaining liquid and serve.

Quinoa - 1 cup quinoa to 2 cups water or broth.  Place both in pot together and bring to boil, reduce and simmer 15 minutes tightly covered.  Take lid off and finish until all water absorbed or evaporated.

Couscous - 1 cup couscous to 1 1/2 cups water or broth.  Bring water or broth to a boil, remove from heat, add couscous and let stand 5-10 minutes.

The above grains can be used in grain salads, veggie burgers, stuffed bell peppers, whatever.
