Cooking Rice in the Oven

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Start with one cup of uncooked rice. This will be enough for four regular servings of rice. To make a double batch, just double all the quantities given here (but not the cooking times).
  3. Rinse the rice with cold water until the water is clear. You don't absolutely need to rinse the rice, but doing so removes excess starch that can make the rice come out sticky. The flip-side is that rinsing the rice washes away some of the nutrients that are added to white rice. The choice is yours. Note that you don't need to rinse brown rice.
