Brown Rice (its SOOOO yummy!)

My husband (Deland) grew up eating rice EVERY DAY. (He is Iranian after all.) And let me tell you I LOVE Iranian Style Rice. It is so yummy, buttery, and the crispy rice on the bottom of the pot is amazing! The problem is that I'm allergic to large amounts of butter. (It makes my butt bigger.) Plus I know brown rice is much healthier. So I did some research and came up with an amazing brown rice "recipe" that tastes different from the Iranian rice my husband and I love, but is equally yummy. (Deland eats it by itself.)

Enjoy! (And let me know what you think!)

  • Brown Rice
  • Beef Broth - Low Sodium
  • Olive Oil
  • Fresh Garlic - 3 or 4 cloves
  • Dried, Whole Bay Leaves - 3 or 4
  • Sea Salt - a dash
  • Pepper - a dash
  1. Read the instructions on the bag.
  2. Substitute beef broth for the water.
  3. Substitute olive oil for the butter.
  4. Add bay leaves, garlic, salt and pepper to the broth.
  5. When it comes to a boil, add the rice.
  6. Just follow the directions on the bag from here.
