Did You Know?...
Brown rice side dish recipes are a great choice for a healthy diet.
It is rice in its more natural form, still having the bran around it. That's why it takes longer to cook. But, again because it still has the bran, it is also much higher in fiber than white rice and has a much higher nutritional value than white.
Brown rice dishes are naturally low in fat, cholesterol and sodium. Brown rice also has manganese and selenium, both essential for good health.
One cup of cooked brown rice has 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. White rice in comparison, does have 4 grams of protein but almost no fiber.
Brown rice obviously takes much longer to cook as it still has the rice bran attached to it. If you decide to use white instead it is simply a matter of baking it less. See the notes and variations above.
Note that the nutritional values listed above are for the brown rice version of the recipe. If you use white rice the calories, carbohydrate, and cholesterol values will be the same.
