Brown Rice Recipes

Super Onigiri

Super Onigiri

I make these little on-the-go rice balls all the time with leftover rice, and whatever fillings and seasonings are convenient and on hand. These are made with leftover sprouted brown rice and cooked mung beans. They're filled with a bit of avocado, and I made a quick almond-butter + miso slather that I hit with the broiler for a quick flash.

Avocado Spring Rolls

Avocado Spring Rolls

I'm posting this spring roll recipe from Morocco, they were much needed for the flight over. Rice paper wrappers with brown rice, tofu, avocado, chopped hazelnuts, and a slather of intense oregano sauce. Plus a few snapshots of the trip so far.

Savory Do-It-Yourself Power Bars

Savory Do-It-Yourself Power Bars

These homemade power bars are based on the recipe I published years ago in Super Natural Cooking. The main difference here is I made these more savory with toasted walnuts, crumbled kale chips, and oil-cured olives.

Fig Leaf Coconut Rice

Fig Leaf Coconut Rice

This coconut rice is special thanks to a tip Claudia Schwartz (the lovely, charming proprietress of San Francisco's Bell'occhio) gave me. Simmering the rice grains with a single fig leaf gives the rice a wonderful, unexpected flavor and fragrance. Serve topped with toasted pepitas, dried figs, scallions, and pan-fried tofu.

Green Curry Porridge

Green Curry Porridge

A boisterous green curry porridge made with toasted brown rice, a spicy herb-packed green coconut broth, all punctuated with winter squash and lots of green onions. It's the kind of bowl that keeps you warm and full and happy inside-out. It kept us going as we prepped for the recent QUITOKEETO shop update.

Miso Tahini Soup

Miso Tahini Soup

The miso tahini soup we had for lunch as we prepped for the Remodelista Holiday Market last weekend - it was simple, hearty, and restorative with brown rice, winter squash, and a creamy miso-tahini broth. Avocado, lemon zest, toasted nori, and chives kept things lively and beautiful up top.

Kale Rice Bowl

Really great pancakes made with lots of brown rice and sesame seeds. I throw in crumbled, toasted nori and spices to make them extra special.

Green Rice with Smoked Paprika

Green Rice with Smoked Paprika

The green rice recipe that got away from me - lots of spring produce, finished with smoked paprika and toasted pine nuts.

Sesame Almond Brown Rice Balls

Sesame Almond Brown Rice Balls

Perfectly portable sesame almond brown rice balls. I packed these for a road trip from SF to Portland last week. They're flecked with green onion, and you can tuck edible surprises (i.e. avocado) in the centers if you like.

Shichimi Mushroom Rice Bowl

I made this mushroom topped brown rice bowl the other night when I returned from Yosemite - chanterelles, garlic, kale, tofu, and lots of Shichimi Togarashi, the Japanese spice blend.

A delicious rice gratin recipe - a hearty casserole of baked rice flecked with spinach. The top bakes into a golden cheese crust made even better with a generous sprinkling of black olives, red onions, and toasted pine nuts.
