1 cup (250mL) uncooked long grain rice
½ (2.5mL) teaspoon salt

Yield: Serves 4 - Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30-35 minutes



Combine boiling water and Bigelow® Green Tea Bags together. Let stand for 10 minutes.

In a 1-quart (1L) casserole bowl, combine green tea and butter; stir until butter melts. Stir in rice and salt. Cover casserole bowl.

Bake in a preheated 350ºF (180ºC) oven for 30-35 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork before serving.
