-Have I got a trick for you to cook brown rice. With this clever technique, you can easily whip up a big batch to keep on hand for any recipe calling for cooked rice. Simply use a 2 to 1 water to rice ratio. First, dissolve 1 teaspoon of salt into 4 cups of water. In a three-quart rectangular baking dish, combine the water mixture with 2 cups of brown rice. Give it a quick stir to evenly disperse the ingredients. Cover the dish with foil and place in a 350-degree oven for 1 hour. That's it. Come back in an hour to remove the rice from the oven and fluff it up to add to your recipe. With this so easy technique, there's no reason to turn to instant white rice when helpful fiber and nutrient-packed brown rice is so easy to make.
