Baked Brown Rice…

I can cook a lot of  things but one thing I have a hard time making is rice. I’ve tried MANY times cooking it on the stove but it’s either burnt or watery. It got so bad that I resigned to buying microwaveable rice packets from Trader Joes or Costco. One day while checking out one of my Facebook groups, someome mentioned cooking it in the oven. What now?! Who cooks rice in the oven? I followed their lead and discovered the easiest and best way to cook rice. I will never buy a microwaveable packet again! Brown rice made EASY…

1.5 cups of brown rice
2.5 cups of water
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon of salt
Other seasonings to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the rice into an 8-inch square glass baking dish. Bring the water, butter, and salt just to a boil in a 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 45 minutes. Check to make sure it’s almost done and not burned. Bake for 15 more minutes. After 1 hour total, remove cover and fluff the rice with a fork.

I must say that this was probably the best rice I’ve ever made. Rice can be used for a weeks worth of recipes! I made several tofu and shrimp stir fry meals!
