We don't eat it, but you can cook it up and use with stir fry, or else add butter, brown sugar, berries and milk for a rice pudding/cereal type of thing.

 I use brown rice with stir fry, chili.  Pretty much anythnig I use white rice for.   My favorite is steak in a nice brown gravy over brown rice with zucchini and yellow squash.

I use it often. You can add some grilled chicken and a little chicken stock and your favorite vegetables .. My kids then like a little fresh grated Parmesan on top

I use it in any recipe that calls for white rice.  We especially like it with stir fry.

I cook brown rice by the box and freeze in meal-sized portions...

I make it into fried rice- saute some chopped or sliced or shredded veggies- cabbage, onion, bell pepper, carrot, mushroom, bean sprout, water chestnuts, brocolli, bok choi, whatever you like... add the cooked rice to the veggies, scramble an egg into it if you like... add whatever sauce you like (I like hoisin sauce, korean BBQ sauce, teriaki, soy sauce).  If you like, you can add a packet of fried rice seasoning.  Salt and pepper to taste.  Add a protein if you like- diced sauted tofu, sliced chicken, beef, pork, more egg...  very quick and easy...

Chicken (or beef or pork) and rice... saute the meat, add the cooked rice, add  a little gravy or sauce, serve with a veggie

Breakfast cereal- take the cooked rice, add a little milk, cook some more, add raisins, dried cranberries or apples, some cinnamon, brown sugar, some nuts...

Rice balls... take cooked rice, put a slice of American cheese on it, melt the cheese, mix it up really well, shape the cheesy rice into little balls (little kids love these)...
