Not the Same Old Rice

As far as side dishes go, do they come any easier than rice? However, you need to mix it up. I'm not a huge fan of just plain rice.

Here's a great and different way to make rice that we found.

Baked Brown Rice


2 cups brown rice
1 teaspoon butter
3 cups chicken broth
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper, or to taste
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 pinch cayenne pepper


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Toast rice and butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until rice gives off a nutty fragrance, about 5 minutes. Transfer rice to a Dutch oven or lidded casserole dish.

Bring chicken broth, olive oil, salt, black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper to a boil in the same saucepan; pour over rice and stir to combine.

Cover and bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Notes: I really liked this. The black pepper gave it such a nice kick. Good stuff.
