Comes out perfect every time! Taken from one of my favorite cookbooks, The Vegetarian Mother’s Cookbook by Cathe Olson. (Buy it now for half price from her website – she has some with a small misprint on the cover for sale!)
1 1/2 cups brown rice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups boiling water
2 teaspoons olive oil
Mix salt into rice. Pour boiling water and oil over rice; cover and bake at 375 for 50 minutes.
*Baking time is somewhat flexible; if you’re already baking something else at 350, for example (like Honey Baked Lentils), simply add a few minutes to the cooking time. (I like to add the Basic Baked Rice dish to the oven after the lentils have been baking for 30 minutes, giving the rice 60 minutes to bake. Turns out great.)
