Fluffy and not-too-sour, a blank canvas for your favorite seasonings and dishes, here's how to easily soak brown rice overnight for best nutrition... and cook it perfectly the next day!
Combine rice, water, and raw apple cider vinegar in a non-reactive container such as a Mason jar or large glass bowl.
Cover and leave on the counter for at least 8 hours.
If desired, drain the rice through a fine mesh colander, being sure to catch and measure the soaking liquid.
Note the amount of soaking liquid.
Rinse the rice well.
Replace soaking liquid with the same amount of fresh water or broth.
Move rice and cooking liquid of choice (soaking water, fresh water, or broth) to a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid.
Bring the rice and water to a boil (uncovered), then reduce heat to a simmer (covered).
Cook for 40 to 45 minutes, or until all the cooking liquid has been absorbed.
Remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
Fluff with a fork.
Serve and enjoy! Or allow to cool, and package for freezing.
To make baked rice in the oven...
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Follow the same procedure as for stove top cooking above, then after bringing to a boil, cover saucepan and put in the oven.
Bake for 25 minutes, then turn oven off and let set in the oven for 5 more minutes.
Fluff with a fork and serve, or allow to cool then package for freezing.
