Perfectly Cooked Brown Rice


We eat A LOT of brown rice in my house, well, since I started cooking it in the oven. You probably think I’m crazy, but just trust me. I used to hate making brown rice because it took forever and never came out right. Sticky, gummy, under-cooked, you name it, I have experienced it. This recipe right here is a game changer, so much so, I have it taped to my rice container! It only takes a few  minutes to prep, then its off to the oven. Perfect EVERY time!

Now I have a large batch of perfectly cooked brown rice ready for quick lunches and dinner all week.
