Description

Organic Short Grain Brown Rice is a great cupboard staple.

Organic Short Grain Brown Rice is a basic brown rice variety perfect for a wide range of warming dishes. It is called short grain as it has a shorter, rounder appearance than its more slender counterpart – long grain rice.  Brown rice is popular in the world of wholefood as it contains the outer hull of the grain. This germ/bran layer contains added nutrition and fibre. The outer layer gives brown rice a slightly longer cooking time than white rice and it has more bite once cooked.  This short grain brown rice cooked up into a softer grain than long grain or basmati so it is a great accompaniment to curries and stews.

If you prefer white varieties try our organic white basmati rice.  We also stock a range of speciality rices such as organic wild rice, organic black rice, organic brown basmati rice, organic brown basmati rice and organic red rice.

Family Tip:

  1. We enjoy short grain rice with vegetable chilli or organic chicken curry.
  2. We usually make an extra couple of portions for lunches and dinners, but remember rice only keeps for about 2 days.
  3. We have also discovered that it makes a great fragrant rice pudding – with organic nutmeg, cinnamon and coconut sugar!
