Brown Rice

My family is all about white rice. I bought brown rice the other day. It made me a little frustrated that brown rice takes 45 minutes to cook and no one in my family would eat it.

How can I make brown rice so its edible to my white rice loving family?

I cook all rice in a vegetable broth. I think that makes it taste nice, but we too prefer white rice over brown.

 The only way my family will eat it is in fried rice, or paealla, or somthing where they don't know that it's brown rice. like with soy sauce or tomato sauce. Cooked in chicken broth, then sauteed with lots of onions and peppers is good, too.

Same here.  If they don't know, they might eat it.  If they know, they'll swear they don't like it!

My family will eat it, reluctantly, if there's nothing else.

 Yeah, cooking it in broth is an excellent idea.  I have done it with white too.  I prefer white but I really tried to like brown.

 Fried brown rice would probably be the only way I would like it too.  That's a great idea ;)

A little bit of sugar and cinnamon always does the trick for my famiky.
