We've found that cooking brown rice like pasta produces the fluffiest grains.

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring 8 cups water to a boil in a Dutch oven over high heat. Add rice; reduce heat, and simmer 35 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Drain well.

Step 2

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add rice, pepper, and salt; sauté 2 minutes or until rice is heated. Stir in cilantro and turmeric, if desired.
