As I have moved to trying to cook more healthy, one of the switches I made was to using brown rice instead of white rice. I always cooked brown rice on the stove, and it always seemed that the rice just didn’t quite get done. The rice seemed a bit crunchy sometimes and my family always noticed when I was using brown rice because of it.
Well…enter this recipe…baking brown rice in the oven! This rice turns out great every time and my family loves it. This is a great way to bake up a bunch of rice ahead of time and freeze it for later meals. Give it a try!
The BEST Brown Rice
- 2 cups brown rice
- 5 cups water
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 Tbsp. butter or olive oil
- Put all ingredients in a 4-Quart glass oven-proof dish with lid (or cover with foil if you don't have a lid).
- Cover tightly with lid (or foil). Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. You can also bake it early in the afternoon, and then turn the oven off after 1 hour of baking. Let the dish stay in the oven until supper time.7.6.418http://sherigraham.com/the-best-brown-rice/Copyright Sheri Graham - www.SheriGraham.com
