Brown rice

Brown rice is a whole-grain rice with the inedible outer hull removed. This is as compared with white rice, which is the same grain, also with hull removed, but also with the bran layer and cereal germ removed.

Brown rice is a whole grain. Brown rice is usually considered much healthier than white. Brown rice is a whole grain that contains the bran and germ. These provide fiber and several vitamins and minerals.

The health benefits of brown rice are largely due to it being a whole grain. According to HSPH, the fiber in brown rice helps lower cholesterol, moves waste through the digestive tract, promotes fullness, and may help prevent the formation of blood clots. Brown rice is considered a low "glycemic index" food.

To cook long grain brown rice you need 1 ¼ cups of water to 1 cup of brown rice.  Bring to the boil then simmer for 45-55 minutes.  If you soak the rice for a few hours before cooking this will reduce the cooking time to around 30 minutes.
