How to Bake Brown Rice in the Oven

READY IN: 1hr 5mins




  • Add 1 1/2 cups raw brown rice to bottom of a 9x13-inch glass baking dish. (Or do 1 cup in an 8x8-inch glass baking dish.).
  • Spread evenly over the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour in liquid at a ratio of 2 1/4 times the amount of rice you used. I generally do water, but if I want a bit more flavor, I will do half water and half chicken or vegetable broth. (2.25*1.5=3.375, or 3 3/8 cup of water for this recipe.).
  • Press down and floating rice with a flat spatula.
  • Once all the rice is at the bottom and no longer floating -- Wrap tightly with foil.
  • Bake at 350°F for 1 hour.
  • Let cool slightly before removing the foil -- there will be lots of steam and you don't want to get a steam burn!
  • Fluff with a fork, season with salt and pepper and serve.
  • And that's how you do it friends!
  • Simple, deliciously perfect brown rice, baked in the oven!
