We've been trying to use more brown rice in our diet but the darn stuff takes so long to cook and I don't always plan ahead enough to include it in the meal. What if I use Judy's idea for rice instead of oatmeal. I've seen packages of precooked brown rice at the market for sale for a whole lot of money. Just too expensive for me. Maybe I can reproduce those. It turns out I can, easy and inexpensive. I used my new pressure cooker too. I made a batch of brown rice in the pressure cooker in 10 minutes using broth and herbs to add flavor. Then I used cooking spray to grease up my muffin tins well and put 1/2 cup of cooled rice in each cup, a perfect serving size for one person.
|Now you know just how old my muffin tins are!|
It takes about two minutes in the microwave to reheat the cakes and presto brown rice for dinner!
|A dinner of left overs - brown rice, broccoli, sweet potato, and roast chicken. That chicken looks a little dry but it tasted good.|
Until next time,
