Wholesome Brown Rice Recipes

Looking for an easy healthy switch this year? Swap out your standard white rice for wholesome brown rice, packed with fiber, nutrients and delicious nutty flavor. Our brown rice recipes offer options for every eating plan.

Versatile and easy to prepare (it only takes a bit longer to cook than white rice), brown rice can be added or swapped into a variety of recipes. For cozy comfort, stir cooked brown rice into soups and casseroles, or try it in your next pilaf dish.

Brown rice also makes a great addition to grain-based salads, especially those served warm with hearty greens. While the natural nuttiness of brown rice means it requires less seasoning than white rice, adding zippy dressings or spices from across the globe make brown rice recipes interesting and worthy of adding to your meal rotation.

Go beyond the basics and embrace brown rice in rice pudding for dessert (or breakfast!) or make your own batch of horchata, a creamy, spiced rice drink that is wonderful any time of year.

Pair brown rice recipes with our favorite collard recipes for a memorable meal, or find more inspiration with our recipes for whole grains.
