Veteran – Baked Brown Rice

I have been looking for a better way to cook BROWN RICE.  I have a rice cooker, but it never seems to come out the way I want it.  Even when I cook rice on my stovetop, it seems to be more mushy than I would like.  My sister-in-law found this recipe below and shared it with me.  By far, it makes the best brown rice that I have tried.  You do need to allow for an hour to make, but it is well worth it.

Baked Brown Rice


1 1/2 Cups Brown Rice (rinsed)

2 1/2 cups HOT WATER (I boil mine in my kettle)

1 TBS Butter (optional)

1 tsp Salt (sprinkle over the rice evenly)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Place rice into a 8 inch square casserole pan.  Pour hot water over the rice, add butter and salt as desired.  Quickly cover casserole dish with tin foil and bake on middle rack for 1 hour. 

The rice comes out with a great texture, fluffy and really yummy!  Lasts a week in your fridge (if not longer).  Hope you enjoy!

Life is good!
