Baked rice is so delicious...I remember my grandmother used to make it a staple for almost every meal. Her version was more of a Spanish rice though it had some crushed tomatoes, chopped garlic, and onion, peas and tomato sauce. The texture was completely different than your typical Spanish was drier and had crisp edges to it which only enhanced the flavor. This version would be great as a side for just about anything you like and would probably make an awesome fried rice too!

I was unfamiliar with this as a side dish and it sounds really interesting. My wife and I like basmati rice and I'm wondering how this might taste with beef broth or bouillon in place of chicken. It's definitely something we want to try. Has anyone experimented with adding some meat or vegetables to this before baking? We've made some chicken and rice dishes that required baking and I've enjoyed the taste the baking process gave the rice.

Baked rice is new to me as well. I cooked rice in an electric steamer a few times and I realized that it tastes slightly different to boiled rice, in a nice way. Also, the grains are smaller when the rice is cooked. I think this baked rice dish could be served with steamed or grilled fish and a fresh garden salad, or perhaps steamed vegetables as well.

I have never baked rice. I am definitely going to try this recipe. It sounds like something I'd enjoy eating and I think my little granddaughter would too. This is an inexpensive dish too. I think I'd serve it with one of my favorite chicken dishes. What other meals would this taste good with?

I have been hoping to find the perfect baked rice recipe since 1973 ! Will definitely try this!

@sholly58 9230633 - We would not suggest substituting instant rice since you would have to alter the amount of water you use in the recipe and that can get a bit tricky. -The editors of RecipeLion

Can instant rice be used?
