Why brown rice instead of white rice? Brown rice is a whole grain that is nutritious delivering fiber, protein and selenium. White rice is brown rice with all the good stuff removed in processing. Whole grains like brown rice are full of nutrients and fiber, which helps in healthy digestion, insulin and blood sugar stabilization, and weight management. Brown rice is a "good carb" that helps balance your diet and can help fill you up.
Put rice and broth into a small pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low, cover pot and simmer until liquid is completely absorbed and rice is just tender (about 30-40minutes).
Fluff rice with a fork then sprinkle with parsley and ground pepper. It's ready to serve. 1/3 cup is one serving.
Recipe make ahead tip -- You can make a big batch of rice and store it in the refrigerator for meals for the week. Then, when you need it, just warm up the portion you need and serve. No waiting 40 minutes!
