Perfect Brown Rice

brown riceBrown rice can be a difficult dish to make. Sometimes it turns out too soft and sometimes too hard. Because of this, many people turn to instant rice which is really not the same. It just doesn’t taste as good and the texture is just not right. Here is a recipe that I found some time ago that will allow you to make the perfect brown rice every time with a minimal amount of work.

You will need the following:

  • Brown Rice – 1.5 cups
  • Hot Water – 3 cups
  • 8-10 inch Glass Pan (or similar)
  • 1 TBSP Margarine
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt (optional)

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. In your glass pan, combine  your rice, hot water, margarine and salt. Mix until the margarine melts. Cover and bake at 400 degrees for one hour. After one hour, remove from the heat, fluff with a fork and serve. Perfect rice, each and every time.


  • Choose a quality brown rice. Many cheaper store brands do not turn out as good. I personally prefer Mahatma.
  • Kosher salt is preferred over table salt. It just tastes better. Try it, you will never turn back.
  • Try adding cooked peas to the rice at the end of the cooking process for something different.

We have used James for the past three years. He is always on time, professional, and through. We have recommended him to multiple people and will continue to use him in the future.

We have been using Prodigy for years and love them! The service is very professional and the results are great. I love the easy online booking process too. I can't recommend Prodigy enough.

We have used lots of carpet cleaning services over the years and I'm glad to say we have finally found one that goes the extra mile in service and attention to detail. Formerly Carlson Carpet Cleaning, Prodigy does not try to upsell you with useless additional services or will make excuses why something does not get clean the first time. He will come back out and make it right! The others, and you know the names, give it a lick and a promise. Prodigy vacuums thoroughly at first, moves your furniture and puts it back on styrofoam to allow it to dry without spotting. And he is very professional and courteous.

James called on his way to let me know when he would be there and he arrived promptly. He was very professional and finished the work quickly and efficiently. I called at 8pm and left a message with a question and he called me back within 5 minutes.

I had a great experience using them last week. James called in advance and showed up right on time. As this was my first carpet cleaning, James was patient and accommodating to my requests.
