For those of you who don't own a rice cooker and don't want another random device in your kitchen that you have to fish out of your already over-filled cupboard....or for those of you who don't want to fish out the one you do have.... here's a handy tip for cooking brown rice in your oven.
4 c water
1 1/2 c brown rice
2 t oil
1 t salt
other seasonings to taste
1. Place all mixed up in 8x8 glass dish and double cover the top with tin foil.
2. Bake at 375 for 1 hour.
3. Pull out and fluff. (I leave mine in until dinner is ready if I've only got 10 minutes or so left)
Super easy and you can add onions and garlic or curry powder or cumin or tomato sauce, etc. However you like to cook rice....and it doesn't burn. :)
Also, I normally do 2 cups rice to 6 cups water in a 9x13 dish now at 400 for 1 hour or 350 for 1.5 hours.
