How Can I Make Brown Rice Taste Good?

A Brown Rice Recipe That Doesn't Suck

The following recipe was originally published on Nosh With Tash. You can follow Nosh with Tash host and private chef Natasha Feldman on Instagram here.

Some of us love brown rice and some of us just endure it because it's healthy. I'll admit that it can be a bland, gummy disaster, but by following this recipe, you'll end up with perfect rice 98 percent of the time.

Remember, rice can chill in the fridge for a few days, so make extra and have that fiber hanging out for when you need it. It's great to throw into a salad, for a quick grain bowl, or even with some over-easy eggs.
