Oven Baked Rice

Make rice in the oven when you are baking the main dish. No watching to make sure it doesn’t boil over. It cooks with the rest of the meal in the oven. So easy to make.

Any type of white rice can be used. If you'll be making brown rice you'll need to increase the cooking time to 60 minutes.
