Put rice into a large rectangular baking dish (lasagne size).
Heat the oil in a frying pan, add onion and sauté until soft, add salt (omit salt if stock has salt added), stock and bring to the boil, then pour over rice. Cover with double layer of tin-foil and bake for 1 hour 10 minutes or so until the rice is tender.
