Brown Rice in the Microwave (steamykitchen)

1 c brown basmati rice
3 c water

Wash rice, rinse and drain. Add rice and water to very large microwave safe bowl. Microwave uncovered at 100% power for 10 min. Reduce power to 50%, cover bowl and microwave another 20 min. Fluff with fork and serve. Makes 4 servings. Note: You can use any type of brown rice – if you are using fat short-grained brown rice, add 3 min to the cooking time at the end. IMPORTANT – Use a tall, pot-like container and if the lid is not vented, do not close the lid completely tight. Leave a space for steam to vent out. Corningware; the type with a glass lid works well too.
