my version of memere's baked rice

this baked rice is always a hit. i am a huge fan of meals that can be made in one dish, and this one's a winner (as my memere would say...but a winner for her is a loser)...i wonder where i got my sarcasm from?

you will need:

-one cup of rice (i enjoy organic short grain brown)
-2 cups of water
-a packet or cube of onion soup broth
-a plop each of minced garlic and ginger
-a chopped onion
-any vegetables
-tofu, cubed (optional)
-a good glug of olive oil and dark soy sauce
-chili flakes (optional)

preheat the oven to 350 deg. throw all ingredients in oven proof casserole with lid. stir. stick in oven for an hour and a bit for brown rice, about 30-45 minutes for white rice. check it a couple times and give it a stir while it cooks.

tastes great sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds.

hope you are all enjoying the longer nights and typically awe inducing sunsets. xx
