Everything you need to know about cooking brown rice in the Thermomix.
Brown rice is undoubtedly better for you than white rice which has been stripped of it’s outer layers. It’s a staple in our household and we love it with curries, grain bowls and as a side to grilled meat and fish.
I’ve only just started cooking brown rice in the Thermomix as our induction cook top broke down and we had to wait two months for a replacement part. I love how easy it is to cook rice in the Thermomix, you just set and forget and don’t have to worry that it will boil over or boil dry.
