You'll wonder why you haven't done this all along! Easy, perfectly baked rice every time!
Recipe type: Side Dish
Serves: 3-4
  • 1 cup white rice, uncooked
  • 2 tbsp butter, cut up in cubes
  • Salt, sprinkle on top
  • 2 cups boiling water or soup stock
  1. Spray a 9x9" (or similar) size casserole dish with nonstick cooking spray and preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. Place uncooked white rice in an even layer in the dish and dot with cubes of butter on top and season with salt.
  3. Have heavy duty tinfoil ready to cover dish (or use lid of casserole dish if applicable) and pour 2 cups of boiling water or soup stock on top of rice. Cover immediately and seal tight.
  4. Bake in oven for 20 minutes, fluff rice with a fork and check if it's done. Return to oven and check in 5 minute increments until done.
I like to add 2 tsp of Oxo chicken bouillon to my boiling water for a nice chicken stock; I don't add as much salt if I do this. If your rice isn't quite cooked at 20 minutes, fluff with fork, cover and return to oven. Turn off oven and it will finish cooking while your other dishes are cooking.
