Baked brown rice

Lucille Hoerle


I can't take credit for this recipe. I saw Alton Brown make it on the Food Network and I have been making it this way ever since.

Brown rice is good for you, but it takes a long time to cook and this is a fool proof way of making it and easy too.

I hope you try it.

How to Make Baked brown rice


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

    Place the rice into an 8-inch square glass baking dish.

    Bring the water, butter, and salt just to a boil in a kettle or 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 1 hour.

    After 1 hour, remove cover and fluff the rice with a fork. Serve immediately.
