Roasties… Roasted Brown Rice

Way back in our college days, when my husband and I were just getting to know each other, he wooed me with his cooking. One of my all-time favorites from his repertoire of healthy snacks was roasties. Now, years later, they are still a family favorite. Roasties are the perfect crunchy, salty snack and are really fun to make and eat!

Playful Learning: Roasted Brown Rice

Start out by soaking approximately 1/2 cup of sweet brown rice overnight. The next morning, drain the water. Heat a large skillet on medium/high heat. Cover the the skillet with rice (it will still be wet) and add a pinch of sea salt. Continuously stir and shake the rice (see video below). You will start to hear and see it pop. Keep it moving until the rice is a golden brown color.
