2 cups long grain white or brown rice
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 scant teaspoon salt
4 to 5 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock


Preheat the oven to 350°. If using white rice, you will need 4 cups stock. If using brown rice you will use 5 cups stock. If using white rice, place the rice in a colander and rinse it in the sink in cold water until the water runs clear. Allow the rice to drain and dry for 20 minutes. If using brown rice, skip this step. Over medium heat, heat the olive oil in a casserole with a tight fitting lid. Sauté the rice in the oil until it starts to brown. Sprinkle the salt over the rice and pour in the stock. Cover tightly and place in the oven. Bake for 35-40 minutes (white rice) to 1 hour (brown rice). When the pilaf is done, all of the liquid will have been absorbed. A lovely aroma will fill the room when you open the lid of the pot. Serve immediately as a side dish with a meat, fish or vegetarian entree.

Makes 6 to 8 servings
