I don’t have much luck cooking brown rice on top of the stove. Even when I follow the package directions exactly it is still crunchy. Instead of writing off making brown rice I decided to try baking it. It uses another dish if you don’t have an oven safe pot but I would rather have an extra dish to clean than crunchy rice.
Baked Brown Rice
- 4 teaspoons olive oil
- 1-2 cloves garlic
- 1 cup brown rice
- 2 cups broth or water
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a pot with a lid heat the oil over medium heat. Add in the garlic and rice. Cook and stir until rice has a toasty smell. Pour in the broth and salt, cover pan and bring to a boil. Carefully pour rice and broth into an oven safe casserole. Cover with foil or a lid. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked. Fluff with for before serving.
