Best Brown Rice Recipe

I have tried quite a few brown rice recipe, but once I made this one there was no turning back! It really is the best brown rice ever! I make a double batch at the beginning of each week and freeze half of it in a few different labeled baggies and use the rest for dinners or lunches during the week. I also make a big batch of beans (recipe soon to follow) at the same time to always have the ingredients for ready to eat burritos!




Ingredients:
this makes about 2-3 large servings. I always double it**

-1 tbsp butter
-1 C brown rice  (**I really like Ca brown Basmati-its a aromatic
                                  long grain rice)
-1 egg
-2 C veggie broth (you can use chxn broth)
-1tbsp olive oil

*Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Saute brown rice with the egg in the butter. You have to constantly stir it over medium heat until the rice is dry. Usually take about 5 minutes.






Then you add your broth and olive oil and pour the mixture into a deep baking dish. 








Bake for 30 minutes and then cover with tin foil and bake for another 30 minutes. Check it at the hour mark and if the liquid isn't absorbed, cook it longer and ck every 5 minutes. 
Make sure you don't mess with it while its cooking. You will be tempted to want to stir it, BUT DON'T!!



Best Brown Rice makes a great side or addition to any burrito. I love to eat mine mixed with fresh salsa, avocado, lettuce, black beans and a touch of sour cream and cheese ;) . Give it a try and let me know how you like it. My family LOVES it!
