Still, when something is slotted as 'healthy', it is doomed to be thrust into the 'tasteless' pile, which is a shame, because brown rice has a really lovely, nutty richness to it. Perhaps the way to look at brown rice is not as an alternative to something better, but as a delicious ingredient on its own. But whichever way you look at it, there's certainly something about brown rice. Nowadays, you are spoilt for choice, you get brown rice noodles, brown rice pasta and brown rice atta as well.
We know brown rice tends to go rancid really fast. Luckily, it is pretty easy to stop that from happening - make sure your brown rice is stored either in its original packaging or in an airtight container. The more it interacts with oxygen, the quicker it will get rancid. Many people say that it should be stored in the freezer, but I have always kept mine in the fridge and it has lasted for eight months or so. Essentially, you need someplace that is dark and cool. My tip though, is to buy smaller quantities and consume the rice quickly, so massive jars of rice do not clog up your fridge or freezer.About the author:
