Cooking rice in the oven is an efficient use of energy when other foods are baking, and it frees up your stovetop when cooking other dishes. Boiling liquid must be used to start the cooking process. Carefully combine rice, boiling liquid, salt, and butter or margarine (see Rice Cooking Chart) in a baking dish or pan; stir. Cover tightly and bake at 350°F (see cook times below). Remove from oven carefully and fluff with a fork.

  • White Rice – 25 to 30 minutes
  • Whole Grain Rice (e.g., Brown Rice) – 50 to 60 minutes
  • Parboiled Rice – 30 to 40 minutes
