  • Prep Time: 5
  • Cook Time: 45
  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 3 cups of rice 1x


  • 2 1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup brown rice (medium or long grain)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Heat your oven to 375° F. Heat the water in the microwave (or on the stove) until almost boiling. I put mine in the microwave for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour the water and rice into an 8-inch square baking dish (I use a glass dish like this). Add in the olive oil and salt.
  3. Tightly cover the dish with foil. Bake for one hour. Remove the foil. If the rice still has liquid in it you can cook without the foil for a few more minutes (like 3-5 minutes).
