Thanks to Alton Brown we can all always count on making perfect rice!! If you have the time this is my all time favorite way to make rice now. I use brown jasmine or brown basmati rice. It comes out perfect every time. The best part, our home will smell like delicious toasting rice!
BAKED BROWN RICE (slightly tweaked from Alton's Baked Brown Rice recipe)
brown rice of your choice (I use Trader Joe's Brown Jasmine Rice)
1 tbsp butter or olive oil (I omit this ingredient)
1 tsp fresh cracked salt (I omit this ingredient)
aluminum foil (Alton calls for heavy-duty, I just use two sheets of regular)
Preheat oven to 375
Measure out ingredients based on your package stovetop cooking instructions.
Trader Joe's Brown Jasmine Rice calls for:
2 cups water
1 cup rice
Place the rice into an 8" square glass baking dish.
Bring the water (butter/olive oil and salt if using) to a boil in a small pot.
Once the water comes to a rolling boil, pour it over the rice, stir to combine and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
Bake for 1 hour.
After 1 hour, remove from the oven, fluff the rice (scraping the bottom) and enjoy
