Traditionally white rice is used to stuff cabbage, but because the cooking time of brown rice is twice that of white, it’s important to parboil brown rice to keep the correct cooking time.
Here’s how to parboil it: Bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil. Throw in 1/3 cup of brown rice (it will swell). Boil the rice for 20 minutes then drain. Use as directed in the recipe.
