Are Brown and White Rice Interchangeable?

I know that brown rice takes longer to cook, but can it be used in any dish that calls for white rice?

(Trying to cook healthier!)

  • Yes for most things you can. I cook my brown rice in low sodium chicken broth so it tastes better. :)

  • I believe it is. I saw a commercial for rice and the white uncle bens rice is brown rice,if that makes any sense.

  • Pretty much. I've switched to mostly brown rice and it comes out the same in all my "recipes" (other than the altered cooking time of course).

  • Most definately. It's a bit chewier and nutty tasting. I've stopped using rice and switched to farro and wheat berries.
