Easy Baked Rice

Sunday, November 9, 2014

I have to admit I feel a bit silly posting a recipe for rice. Cooking rice is a very basic thing, and most everyone can do it, This recipe, however, is the only way I cook rice. And it is baked. And it is super easy to do. You basically start it on the stovetop and as it comes to a boil, you lid the pan and put it in the oven to bake. I swear, y'all. it is perfect rice every time. And you can add veggies ( I have added chopped broccoli, cranberries and fresh herbs with success) and you can get creative with the spices. I use cumin and chili powder for a rice to serve along side tacos or enchiladas.

I figure you guys are looking for quick sides too, and with the holidays approaching, this would be perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas menus. I highly recommend this side dish, on any occasion.
