Simple Brown Rice

Looking for a simple way to spice up some brown rice? This is one of my favorite breakfasts believe it or not. Start with 2/3c-1c raw hulled sunflower seeds. Dry roast them in a skillet until lightly browned.

In a pot place 2c water and 1c washed brown rice plus a pich of salt. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to simmer and cook approximately 45 minutes, until rice is plump and cooked through.

Place 1/2c cooked rice in a bowl.

Top with a handful of roasted sunflower seeds, chew well and enjoy!

What I like most about this easy breakfast is the combination of flavors. The roasted seeds remind me of deep earthy nutty goodness and the rice warms my belly with whole grain nutrients. Together their like a little bowl of nutty heaven.
