INGREDIENTS
1 cup of brown rice
1-2 teaspoons of vegetable oil
1 stick of celery
1 cup of salt-free vegetable stock (or homemade stock)
½ cup of water

METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 180C (350F).

2. Trim the root and top from the celery then wash the stalk well and chop into small pieces.

3. Heat a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat, pour in the rice, and stir constantly until the grains are ‘toasted’ golden brown (this gives the rice a nutty taste).

4. Tip the rice into a small oven-proof dish, return the pan to the heat and add the oil to heat it a little, then add the celery and stir/fry it until soft and very lightly coloured.

5. Add the celery to the rice, add the stock and water, and stir to combine everything.

6. Cover the dish and bake for 35-45 minutes, or until the rice has absorbed the liquid and is soft.

7. Cool well before serving.
