Brown Arborio Rice
Brown Arborio Rice is short-grain Italian rice with a slightly chewy texture and nutty flavor. We source short, plump grains of Arborio with its brown bran layer intact for the flavor and greater nutritional content of our Brown Arborio Rice.
Bring 2 1/2 cups water to a boil. Add rice and reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for 35 minutes. Turn off heat and allow rice to sit covered for 10 minutes.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
Unlike white Arborio rice, our Brown Arborio Rice includes the intact bran of the grain. Since the starch of the grain is not exposed, preparing risotto with brown Arborio rice via the usual method will not return the same results as using white rice. This method, which involves par-cooking the rice before beginning the traditional risotto cooking process, produces a similar end result while adding nutty flavor and extra fiber.
