Whenever we talk about weight loss, white rice is often looked down upon. This is because the polishing process removes the hull, bran, and germ. The bran contains a small amount of oil that can turn rancid. Removing it improves the shelf life of rice. However, the polishing process gets rid of a lot of essential nutrients due to which brown is preferred over white rice. Brown rice has its germ and bran intact and is considered a whole grain. The bran and fibre retained in the brown rice make it health-promoting. It has a shelf life of around 6 months at room temperature. Various types of brown rice are differentiated based on their colour. The pigmentation is a result of the presence of Anthocyanin, an antioxidant present in the rice.

Japanese udon noodles are all about the chew, but it’s hard to replicate the texture with what’s available in American markets. Fresh udon is hard to come by. So for this recipe from our book “Milk Street Tuesday Nights,” which limits recipes to 45 minutes or less, we needed a solution for more widely available dry udon. Enter the Italian technique of cooking the noodles only until al dente — still quite firm. To further firm up the texture, we chilled them by rinsing them with ice in the strainer under cold water. Even after reheating the noodles in the cooked sauce, they retained that pleasant toothsome quality that makes this vegetarian dish feel so hearty. With the texture settled, we opted for an umami-rich sauce of soy sauce, dried shiitake mushrooms and the semisweet rice wine mirin, all balanced by a little sugar. Fresh shiitake and mild-tasting baby bok choy kept the stir-fry light. To balance the savoriness, we turned to pickled ginger, which you can find jarred … [Read more...] about Yakiudon with pickled ginger recipe: For chewy Japanese noodles, borrow an Italian technique

However, it's not yet clear what Biden's plans are for cracking down on potential price gouging.
