However, if you’re looking for a pretty solid replacement or if you just want to mix 50-50 as you wean yourself off the good stuff, this recipe is tried and true.
It’s not just brown rice and water. Onion and garlic make an appearance along with salt and pepper. Sometimes less is more and in this case, it couldn’t be more true.
