    Smile Brown Rice??

    Hi everyone

    I have been using white rice until now,but recently i read that Brown rice has more fibre,and its more healthier.I still have to find the right recipe to cook it though.Also i would want to know which is the best quality if i have to buy, coz i have heard that its very hard to chew.

    Any recipes and any preferences on the quality????

    in advance,

    God bless

    I assume it's for your baby and not for you!

    I've always used organic brown rice, usually from Green Dot Dot. As a first food, I blended it raw into a fine powder and cooked in plenty of water to make a perfect baby porridge/congee. As baby gets older, you blend it less and, by about 12 months, not at all. You can also add in other grains such as millet and barley for variety. These are the instructions in Ruth Yaron's book 'Super Baby Food' which I highly recommend.

    HTH!

    I use brown rice mixed with white rice – the only difference is when cooking it put a bit more water in as brown rice takes longer to cook as so uses more water.

    The reason that I mix the two rices together is because my children won’t eat 100% brown rice. They start to complain when I get up to the 50% mark. So generally I have two portions of white rice for one of brown rice.

    Just on that note. I have only ever given my two (nearly six and two and a half) brown rice, pasta, bread etc. Some friends have asked me how I get them to eat it, but I believe it's simple. If you only ever give them the good stuff, they never know the difference. I'm waiting for the day when my daughter notices the white bread and packaged foods some of the other kids take to school, but so far so good.
    Good luck with the rice.

    I thought Basmati rice is white rice, but just a kind of white rice like arborio or Thai Fragrant?
