  • 2 1/4 cup filtered water
  • 1 cup dry brown rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Add water and salt in a small pot (I used a 2.5 quart pot) and bring to a boil. Stir in ric and bring back up to a boil.
  • Turn the heat to low so that you have a gentle simmer and pop on the lid. Set your timer for 30 minutes.
  • After 30 minutes, begin to check the rice. Once the water has absorbed, shut off the heat and let the pot sit on the stove (with the lid on!) for 15 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and stir you light fluffy rice. Enjoy!
