Herbed Brown Rice w/Lemon

The are some health benefits to brown rice, that’s a plus. Sometimes I just crave the stuff! It is so much more substantial (in my book) than white rice. The grains are heavier in your mouth and just a good and different food experience.


1 1/2 cups brown rice

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons minced shallot

1 garlic clove minced

3 cups beef broth

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tsp thyme

1 1/2 tsp salt


  1. In a med sauce pan heat the olive oil to med hot
  2. Add in the rice
  3. Over medium heat stir fry the rice until slightly toasted
  4. Add in the shallot continue to cook for a few minutes
  5. Add in the garlic, stir for another minute or so, being careful not to burn the garlic
  6. Add in all other ingredients
  7. Bring mixture to a boil
  8. Lower heat to simmer
  9. Cover and cook rice for about an hour and 1/2 or until tender and the liquid is absorbed

Enjoy friends!

Hi, thanks for stopping bye. I have so many passions, not quite sure (ever,) where to start. I hope you find posts here on my blog that are interesting to you. I have a culinary background, having spent time studying in Hollywood Ca. and in the South of France. I am also a passionate amateur photographer. Lately I've been trying my hand at the written word as well. Enjoy.
