Foolproof Baked Brown Rice

Recipe by Meredith K.
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Put water, rice, salt and oil in an oven-safe pot with a tight-fitting lid. (A dutch oven works great.) Bring to a boil on the stove.
  • AS SOON AS IT BOILS, remove from heat and put in the preheated oven.
  • Bake 30 - 35 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and fluff with a fork.
  • NOTE: It's okay if there seems to be a little bit of water left when you take it out of the oven; it will be absorbed as it sits.
  • NOTE 2: You can use more or less of the oil and salt as your taste and diet dictate, but using at least a little of each makes the rice taste better (the salt) and prevents the grains from clumping together (the oil).
