Servings: 4 (4 1/2 cups cooked rice)
(NOTE: 1 cup uncooked rice = 3 cups cooked rice)
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Place 2 1/3 cups water, 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter, and 1 teaspoon of salt in a microwave safe bowl and heat in the microwave till boiling. Or heat on the stove top in a pan.
Use the hottest water you can easily get. If you have a bowl which is both microwave and oven safe, heat water, salt and butter in that bowl, then add in pre-measured rice to water once boiling – just be careful.
If your baking dish also has a lid, put the lid on top of the foil. But even if you have a lid, you still need to use the aluminum foil.
If you want to cook brown rice, it takes longer. Plan on about 1 hour.
Cook at 350°F in a convection oven.
