Equipment

Ingredients
 

  • 3/4 cups brown rice, I prefer Mahatma Brown Rice
  • 1 1/4 cups low sodium chicken broth, or water if you prefer
  • juice of one medium lemon, approximately 1/4 cup and zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracker black pepper, plus more for serving

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Place the rice into an 8×6 -inch glass baking dish.
  • Bring the chicken broth, lemon juice, salt and pepper to a boil in a covered pot on the stove top.
  • Once your water boils pour it over the rice, stir to combine and cover the dish tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Bake in the middle rack of the oven for 1 hour.
  • After 1 hour, remove cover. You will see the top speckled with your spices.
  • Fluff the rice with a fork. Sprinkle with fresh cracked black pepper for garnish . Serve immediately or allow to cool and refrigerate.

Donna’s Notes

To reheat rice drizzle 1/2 – 1 tablespoon of water over a serving of rice and microwave for 30 – 60 seconds.
