Recipe: Savory Baked Rice

I am a very lazy cook. I admit it…I am too lazy to bother standing over a pot on the stove as my rice cooks. Really, it isn’t the watching of the rice that is the problem but the cleanup of the pot afterwards because it ALWAYS seems to stick. I usually try and use my steamer when I make rice but since steaming is my #1 preferred way to cook my veggies this leads to a problem some nights! Here is an easy recipe for baked rice…I prefer Jasmine rice, personally, although you can use whichever type you like. You may have to adjust cooking times for different types of rice.

Savory Baked Rice 


2 cups uncooked rice
2 ½ cups chicken stock (use beef stock if serving with beef)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green or red bell pepper
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 ½ tablespoons unsalted butter – melted
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch ground pepper

1. In a small frying pan over medium heat, melt the butter and saute the onion, garlic,  and peppers until almost tender (4 or 5 minutes)

2. In a 13 x 9 inch pan add the veggies, rice, stock and seasonings. Stir gently to mix and cover tightly with aluminum foil.

3. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Check the rice and stir after 30 minutes to see if it is done yet. Depending on type of rice you may need more/less time than I used.

This will be plenty for 6 people.
