    Prepare the Brown Rice and Soya Nuggets
    Prepare the Brown Rice by washing out the rice. Then put the rice in saucepan and some water (roughly 2ml for every gram of rice). Bring the water to a boil and lower the heat to a gentle simmer. Cover the saucepan and let the rice cook for 15-20 minutes.

    While that’s happening soak the Soya Bean Nuggets in warm water for around 10 minutes before cooking them.
