hello blog lovies!
I am very excited to share this recipe with you. The PERFECT (every time!) rice, I don’t know about you, but I can ruin rice/quinoa. Too dry, burned, undercooked; this recipe couldn’t be easier and it always produces the fluffiest/yummiest rice!
Best Ever Rice Bake
- 1 3/4 cups of Rice (I use Brown Rice. Also, I have never tried this with quinoa and am interested to see what would happen!)
- 2 cups of Hot Water
- 1 tablespoon of Oil (I have used Extra Virgin Olive and Safflower.)
- 1 – 2 teaspoons of Salt (add more/less to taste.)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Pour the rice into a large baking dish. In a small bowl, stir the water and oil together, and add to the rice. Now add salt (or even experiment with different spices such as, (about 2 teaspoons) taco seasoning or garlic!)
Bake for 25 minutes or until the water is completely absorbed.
For a new and delicious dinner: I sautéed a TON of spinach/Kale blend in the cast iron skillet with a little bit of oil drizzled in and salt. When the rice was finished, I added it to the skillet along with sliced roasted avocado
(Bake next to the rice, sliced in half, until slightly crispy.) For a protein boost, I added one egg. We filled our bowls up and really enjoyed this easy dinner. I have been VERY into variations of “Rice Bowls” lately!

Alrighty, if you haven’t headed over to Sally’s Baking Addiction, I thoroughly suggest you do. She has GORGEOUS pictures, amazingly creative recipes, and is a blogging inspiration!
She created this “Beat Bloat” drink and I just had to try it. I had everything on hand and was surprised by how refreshing it is!
- 1 quart of Water
- 2 fresh squeezed Lemons
- 1/4 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 teaspoon of Ground Ginger
- Stevia to taste (I used Liquid.)
Combine everything in a large pitcher and add lots of ice. Drink throughout the day!
