Sprouted Brown Rice
Sprouted Brown Rice (Gaba) is short-grain rice with its brown hull intact that germinates over an extended time, but is stopped before a shoot emerges from the kernel. This process develops a grain with a softer, less chewy texture than regular brown rice and a sweet, mild, nutty flavor.
Rinse 1 cup Sprouted Brown Rice (Gaba) with cold water in a colander. Add rice to 3 cups cold water. Bring to boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook for 40 minutes. Do not lift lid during cooking process. Fluff with fork before serving.
