Baked Rice

An impromptu curry dinner at a friend’s house was my first introduction to rice baked in this manner.  While I’ve never had any problems getting my steamed rice to come out right, baking the rice gives it a wonderful, firm texture, and this is now a staple in our home.

I’ve adapted her recipe to match our preferences.  Enjoy!


* 1 ½ cups brown rice

* 1 ½ cups jasmine rice

* 4 cups water

* 2 tablespoons cold pressed olive-oil (or butter if that’s what you prefer)

* 1 teaspoon real salt


1.      No need to preheat the oven!  Add rice to a 13×9-inch Pyrex pan.  Pour in water, oil, and salt.  Cover tightly with lid or foil.  Bake at 375° for one hour.

2.      Remove from the oven and fluff with a fork.  Place in serving dish and cover with a clean, damp kitchen towel.  Let it stand like this for at least 5 minutes before serving.
