Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Calories are WAY OFF for 4 servings! 1 1/2 cups of uncooked brown rice = 1020 calories! So, 4 servings using uncooked rice would be 275 calories per serving, not 117. Calories calculated seem to be for 1 1/2 cup already cooked rice. You could check Alton Brown (Food Network) for actual recipe. Submitted by:

thanks. just made it . added mushrooms, tamari and turmeric. sautéed onions and mushrooms would have been great, but too lazy.
I get 1107 calories for the 4 servings. that's 277 calories for each of the 4 servings. but I think it actually makes more than 4 servings.

I do not think the calories per serving can possibly be correct. 1 1/2 cups of uncooked brown rice is about 1020 calories. I will try the recipe as it looks like a winner for simplicity but will recalculate the calories. Submitted by:

This is the single recipe on Sparkpeople I've used more than any other. I was out of foil the first time I tried it and used a cast-iron skillet with a lid instead. Worked great; now that's how I always make my rice! Also, I sub a teaspoon or two of Better Than Boullion for the salt. Submitted by:

I absolutely loved this recipe! I changed it just a bit, sauteing onions, bell pepper, and mushrooms, then boiling it with chicken broth instead of the water. I make my own broth and use very little salt so I just omit the salt in this recipe. My family loved it as well! Thanks! :) Submitted by:

I didn't use salt or oil. Instead I added one-half cup each of onions, celery, and carrots that I put through a mini food chopper. Added additional nutrition,flavor and color.Wonderful flavor! Submitted by:

My Grandma baked rice in the oven with her meatloaf & carrots to save electricity, but it was white. I wondered if there was a way to bake brown rice, instead of white, along with my sweet potatoes. I Googled & found this recipe right here on Spark. Yay! I left out the salt & oil. Perfect! Submitted by:

Absolutely the only way I will ever cook brown rice ever again. Cooking for 2. I keep a batch in fridge at all times for salads, soups, etc. I use 1 tsp olive oil and no salt - still the best brown rice I've ever made. We use medium grain brown from our local food co-op. Submitted by:

OMG, thank you so much for this helpful recipe. Like others, I've been unsuccessful with brown rice forever. I used low sodium chicken broth and added about 1/2 tsp curry powder. It's the best rice I've had, brown or white!

This was really good! My first time making brown rice and it turned out wonderful. Next time I may use low-sodium chicken broth in place of the water and a bit less salt. Submitted by:

I omitted the salt as unnecessary and it was really good. Interestingly the rice has a different, nuttier flavor when prepared this way.

Also I heated the water alone in a pan and drizzled the oil over the rice before pouring on the hot water. No sense in dirtying 2 pans!

Olive oil is healthy so even if it adds calories it is worth it. Submitted by:

Made it today without the oil, using Reduced fat/sodium chicken stock instead of water and replaced approximately 1/2 cup of brown rice with wild rice and it came out awesome. Key is to make sure you cover it tightly. I have frozen 5- 1 cup containers-way cheaper than than the steamers Submitted by:

a bit too salty for my liking. i'll try it next time with 1/2 the amount. if using long grain brown rice you have to use a bit less rice with the stated amount of fluid. it's great to be able to bake it and have it come out ready to eat, very convenient and less messy. good! Submitted by:

I cook regular brown rice in the microwave and it comes out great every time. Use the same amount of rice, water and salt that you would for boiling. I use a glass bowl, cover with plastic wrap and mic for 25 minutes at 80% power level for my microwave. Submitted by:

If 1 tsp of salt has 2300 mg of sodium, how does 1 tsp divided by 4 servings yeild only 234 mg per serving. Where does the rest of the sodium go? Submitted by:
