Description

Discover the secret to making perfectly baked rice every time with this simple and foolproof recipe. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned cook, this method ensures fluffy and delicious rice that’s perfect as a side dish or the base for your favorite meals.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Set your oven to 350°F (175°C) and lightly coat a 2-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. Evenly distribute long-grain rice in the prepared casserole dish.
  3. Warm olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped carrot, celery, and onion, and sauté until the onion becomes soft and translucent, which should take about 4 minutes. Incorporate minced garlic and cook for an additional minute. Turn the heat to high, then add chicken stock and a bay leaf, bringing the mixture to a boil. Carefully pour this mixture over the rice in the casserole dish and cover securely with aluminum foil.
  4. Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes. Afterward, remove the aluminum foil and continue baking until the rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, approximately 20 more minutes. Remove the bay leaf, season with black pepper, and fluff the rice with a fork before serving.

Notes

  • – For added flavor, you can substitute chicken broth for water.
    – If you prefer brown rice, increase the baking time to 45 minutes and use the same water ratio.
