Brown Rice (Baked)
70 mins (prep 10, cooking 60)
15 ingredients
6-8 servings
Brown rice is SO much better for you than white rice. It has more nutrients and about 3 times more fiber than white rice does. I never really cared for brown rice UNTIL I tasted this one. You can do as many variations as you like with it. Add your favorite herbs, spices or veggies to it. Make it vegetarian by using veggie cubes instead of chicken. The rice turns out perfectly fluffy and delicious. The aroma that fills your house while it's baking is wonderful and it's hard to wait until it's done to sneak a taste. As it bakes the bay leaves will rise to the top so they can be easily 'fished' out of the casserole before serving. I like to top the finished rice with freshly chopped cilantro and a twist of black pepper. For a nice crunch you can add chopped water chestnuts.
