Toasted Brown Rice

1 cup brown rice, dry

3 cups water

Place rice in a saucepan and rinse briefly with water, then drain away the water completely.

Put pan on high heat and stir the rice until it is dry, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the water.

Bring to a boil, then partially cover and simmer until the rice is throughly cooked but retains a hint of crunchiness, about 40 minutes.

Drain off extra water (do not cook it until all the water is absorbed).

Fluff with a fork.

Note: Top rice with soup, soy sauce, sesame seeds, chutney, vegetables or tofu, etc.
