Get Your Grain Ratios Right (Infographic)

Get Your Grain Ratios Right (Infographic)

Tack this on your fridge and save yourself a Google search. 

Chances are you have a few whole grains in your pantry. They're good for roughly the same uses – grain bowls, starchy sides, sweet or savory breakfasts – but all come with a different set of cooking times and methods. And no matter how hard you try to memorize those Goldilocks ratios of grain to water, they tend to evade you when you need them the most. You inevitably sift through the pantry to find their (sometimes non-existent) packaging to double check, or in my case – rely on Google. 

We think this all-in-one infographic is a much simpler way. (It's easy on the eyes, to boot.)

Brown Rice
Combine 1 cup brown rice and 2 cups of water in a saucepan or small pot.* Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the water has absorbed into the grains – about 30 minutes. Remove from heat, and let steam for 5 minutes with the lid on. Fluff with a fork and serve. 

Sushi Rice
Combine 1 cup sushi rice and 1 cup water in a saucepan or small pot.* Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the water has absorbed into the grains – about 20 minutes. Remove from heat, and let steam for 5 minutes with the lid on. Fluff with a fork and serve. 

Basmati Rice
Combine 1 cup basmati rice and 2 cups water in a saucepan or small pot.* Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the water has absorbed into the grains – about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat, and let steam for 5 minutes with the lid on. Fluff with a fork and serve. 

Farro
Bring 4 cups of salted water to a boil in a pot. Add 1 cup of farro, and cook until the germ has burst, but the grains are still al dente – about 25 minutes. Just like pasta!

Steel Cut Oats
Bring 3 cups water or milk to a boil in a small pot, then add 1 cup of steel cut oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Cover and cook until tender stirring occasionally – about 30 to 40 minutes. 

Rolled Oats
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, then add 1 cup of rolled oats and reduce heat to a simmer. Stir every few minutes until the mixture thickens, and the grains are cooked through and tender – about 15 to 20 minutes. 

Wheat Berries
Bring 3 cups of salted water to a boil in a small pot. Add 1 cup wheat berries, and cook at a rolling boil for 40 to 60 minutes. Strain when the grains are tender but still al dente.  

Quinoa
Soak quinoa for 15 minutes in cold water. Strain, and add to a saucepan or small pot. Add 1 1/4 cup water and bring to a boil.* Reduce to a simmer, and cover, cooking the grains for about 25 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed. Remove from heat and steam for 5 minutes with the lid on. Fluff with a fork and serve. 

*You can also add a pinch of salt for seasoning, or a drizzle of oil to keep the grains loose.
