Cooking Brown Rice

I love brown rice, but was forever burning it ever.single.time I tried cooking it on the stove. What I do now is to put it in the oven on 350 degrees for 1 hour. Cover semi-loosely with tinfoil. If its covered too tightly the water wont evaporate, too loosely and it will evaporate too fast. I have NEVER burned brown (or other long cooking rices) by cooking them in this way.

Replace the water (2c water to 1c rice) with broth, toss in some veggies and you have a great, easy side dish. If you double the recipe, I generally add about 15 min. to the cooking time.

    I make my rice similar to yours, just on the stovetop. I use chicken broth instead of water and then about 15 minutes before it’s done I had some frozen mixed veggies and a package of veggie soup mix…that adds yummy flavor too.I didn’t post this week on Kitchen Tip Tuesday as we were at the hospital.
