Healthy Brown Rice in the Oven
The next best thing to a rice cooker.

If cooking brown rice on the stove leaves you with a mushy mess or burnt to the bottom kernels, then this recipe is for you.


1 cups of long grain brown rice
2 1/3 cup water
2 tsp olive oil
1 tbsp fresh chopped ginger
1 tbsp fresh chopped garlic
3/4 cup chopped bell peppers
Frank’s Hot Sauce to taste

Preheat oven to 375F. Boil water in a small pot. Put rice and olive oil in a 9” x 9” glass baking pan. Stir in ginger, garlic and peppers. Sprinkle Frank’s Hot Sauce or other favourite sauce over the top of rice. As soon as the water boils poor it over the rice mixture.

Cover with double layer of foil and bake for 1 hour. Do not remove foil when cooking. When finished, remove and fluff with a fork. Cover again with paper towel and set for 5 min. To double the recipe, use a 13” x 9” pan. Variations: Use your own favourite chopped vegetables, spices and sauce for a different tasting rice dish each time.
