"This is adapted from a photo copy from a book or magazine. It says The Best Light Recipe at the top. My notes were to increase the lemon and decrease the basil. So I offered that below. Please use fresh lemon and herbs. Using the oven method gives you a fluffy and chewy brown rice instead of wet and soupy or burnt and crunchy."

Adjust an oven rack to the middle position.
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Spread rice in a 8x8 glass baking dish.
Combine the onion, oil, and salt in a medium saucepan. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, 8-10 minutes.
Stir in the broth and bring to a boil.
Once broth is boiling immediately pour it over the rice.
Cover the baking dish tightly with a double layer of foil.
Bake until rice is tender, about 1 hour 10 minutes.
Remove baking dish from oven, uncover, and fluff the rice with a fork.
Stir in the parmesan, parsley, basil, lemon juice, lemon zest and pepper.
Cover the dish with a clean kitchen towel and let stand for 5 minutes.
