Just learned this on the weekend (sorry for all the posts with no pictures recently!)
What you need: (makes enough for 2-3 people)
1 cup medium grain brown rice
1 1/2 cups of cold water
Put rice and cold water in a saucepan. Heat on high until the water in boiling, stirring about 2 times.
Put a lid on the pot, turn the heat down to a low simmer, and leave to cook for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, put about 1-2 tablespoons of water over the rice, turn off the heat, and wait another ten minutes.
