Brown vs White rice Surprising little

Difference between the two. I made some last night, cause I had used up all of our white, and didn't want to try to run to the store with a baby suffering from a bout of upset tummy. Also I've been wanting to try it, with the whole "its better for you" thing, but slightly afraid because "healthy food doesn't taste good". There is a slight difference in texture, but none in taste that I noticed, and DH didn't even say anything, but I didn't tell him :P I've learned if I don't tell him that something he might not like is in dinner, then I get a true reaction of if whether he likes it or not :)

If you are cooking from plain raw rice, the brown rice takes about twice as long, and I think it tastes nuttier, actually better, than white rice.

I had to laugh about your post where you said not telling DH about what type of rice it was. My Fiance hates sour cream with a purple passion but loves my Beef Stroganoff. Guess what's in that? Ha! Ha!



I'm a stinker. I put it in a lot of dishes.....mashed potatoes, gravy, cakes, etc... If he only knew!

Neither me nor DH are fond of sour cream, but I did a sour cream and green onion mashed potatoes one night and we both loved it. I have learned that even if I don't like something, sometimes it just fits in a dish. I will definitely be switching to brown rice for a lot of things I make, and see if he ever notices :)

check my gumbo recipe with brown rice; white rice will work too, but I was looking to use brown rice for this particular audience.
