Microwave Brown Rice

I am becoming a master at microwave meals. Unless you want to go with the traditional TV dinners, it still takes planning. I think it takes even more planning than meals cooked in the convenience of your kitchen just because you're so limited.

I have found that you CAN cook brown rice in the microwave!

1 cup of rice (or about)

Fill the glass dish (Pyrex or something like that) so that it covers the rice. The water should come up to the first joint of your index finger. To measure the water, place your index finger in the dish so that its just touching the rice.

Cover and heat the rice for 8-10 minutes or until the water is boiling. Uncover and hear for 20 more minutes or until all the water is absorbed.
