Brown Rice with a Twist

This isn’t really a recipe, mainly a twist on something we are all probably eating quite a bit of.

When I cook my brown rice (I have a rice cooker), I throw two bags of orange spice tea in with it (I cut off the tag and just put the bag in) and cook it that way. It flavors the rice with a orangey flavor that goes great with lots of different things. If you mix your brown rice with plain yogurt it is sort of like rice pudding (add a bit of Splenda and cinnamon) and it pairs really great with Tilapia or chicken.

*Thank you Rebecca for this fun twist on our Brown Rice staple!

Enjoy!
