Brown rice can be a challenge to cook and so many cooks give up on it. This recipe makes a brown rice side dish you can be proud of. The seasonings and the bone broth build a robust flavor that will delight the whole family. Serve as a side dish or top it with something wonderful like Cuban Black Beans.
For best results, soak the brown rice overnight in warm water. Soaking the rice will reduce the phytic acid (read more here about phytic acid as a mineral inhibitor) and it will reduce your cooking time. A soaked brown rice also tends to be a bit lighter in texture.
Whether you use a delicate broth like chicken or a hearty flavored broth like buffalo depends on what you will serve the pilaf with. You can use vegetable broth but the flavor will not be quite as robust.
