My sweet neighbor sent me this recipe and I remembered that this is how I used to cook brown rice. None of my pans have tight/heavy lids for cooking rice well. The water usually just boils away and I end up burning my rice. A lot of people don’t really like the taste of brown rice, but cooked this way, it’s fantastic!!! When I served it this way for my mom-in-law, she kept asking me if I was sure this was brown rice. 😉
Anyway, my neighbor told me I should post it here since she’d never heard of cooking rice this way and probably a lot of other people haven’t. So here you go, Pam! And thank you for the reminder!! 🙂
Baked Brown Rice
TIME: 1 HR 5 MIN.
a.. 1 1/2 cups brown rice, medium or short grain
b.. 2 1/2 cups water
c.. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
d.. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Place the rice into an 8-inch square glass baking dish.
Bring the water, butter, and salt just to a boil in a kettle or covered saucepan. Once the water boils, pour it over the rice, stir to combine, and cover the dish tightly with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Bake on the middle rack of the oven for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, remove cover and fluff the rice with a fork. Serve immediately.
