Healthy Eating Tip: Cook Whole Grains in Juice

Cooking whole grains is simple — just heat the grains in water and that's it. If you want to enhance the color, flavor, and nutritional value of the grains, it's just as easy. Just use juice instead of water.

Choose from 100 percent carrot, orange, apple, beet, or pomegranate juices. It's a great way to change it up in the kitchen, and your body will appreciate the extra vitamins and antioxidants.

I just tried cooking some brown rice in pomegranate juice, and after 50 minutes, which is my normal cooking time, it's still not done. The flavor is fabulous, but the rice just isn't cooked.

Sounds easy enough! I've got some pomegranate juice I might use to try this out.

I sometimes make quinoa or rice in apple juice to use as filling for stuffed veggies, but I think that's a bit too much sugar for every day, and I frequently do mexican rice in blended tomato. The other vegetable juices sound like an interesting idea to try.

I sometimes do this for breakfast. Quinoa or brown rice with some fruit juice, slivered almonds, and cinnamon.

That's really different-sounding. I've heard of cooking grains in chicken stock or beef stock to increase their flavor, but using juice is something I'd never thought of.
