Mixture of white and brown rice goes down easier: “

My kids routinely balk at brown rice, no matter how much I tout its whole-grain goodness. Refined white rice meets with total approval, of course. My compromise: a half-and-half mixture of cooked white and brown rice is white enough to get past their radar.

I cook a large pot of brown rice and let it cool. I freeze 1/2 cup portions in freezer bags. After I cook white rice, I add the frozen brown rice on top. The accumulated steam defrosts the brown rice in about five minutes. Toss with a little butter, and serve.
