2. Place the brown rice in the dish. In a saucepan, bring the water, butter, and a generous pinch of salt to a boil. Pour the water mixture over the rice and stir well. Cover with foil and transfer to the oven. Bake for 1 hour or until the rice is tender.

3. In a skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil. Cook the garlic, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add the scallions and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes more. Add the edamame and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the mixture is hot.

4. Fluff the rice with a fork, and stir in the edamame mixture. Add the herbs and taste for seasoning. Add more salt and pepper, if you like.
