This recipe is a simple idea to boost the nutrient density of your rice. The bone broth will be absorbed into the rice increasing the protein and collagen content. The added fat will help to convert some of the starch into resistant starch (fibre) to become food for our gut bacteria. This recipe is a no brainer to increase nutrients and to reduce the carb load of the rice. Tastes fantastic too!
1 cup (200ml) brown rice (any type of rice, short grain, long grain or basmati)
240ml bone broth (3 level tablespoons of Dr Gus Bone Broth Tea + 240mL hot water)
1 - 2 tsp of fat (tallow, butter, ghee, or coconut oil)
Step 1. Measure the rice into a cup and rinse it gently but thoroughly in cold water until the water is clear.
Step 2. Soak the rice in cold water and keep it in the fridge for 12 - 24 hours. This will help the grains cook more evenly and be easier to digest.
Step 3. Pour the rice and the bone broth into a pan, then add the fat of choice and mix it well with the rice over a low heat.
Step 4. Once the fat is melted into the broth, put the lid on and bring it to a boil on a high heat.
Step 5. Simmer the rice for 10 minutes then turn the heat down to as low as possible.
Step 6. Keep the lid on and cook the rice for another 10 minutes.
Step 7. Check if the rice is cooked by trying a grain. If it is not quite cooked, put the lid back on and keep cooking for another 3 - 5 minutes on the lowest heat.
Step 8. Fluff the rice with a fork or spoon and serve it. Or leave it for 10 minutes until any residual moisture is absorbed, then fluff it again before serving.
