Makes 4 cups of cooked rice
2 cups boiling water
1 cup long grained brown rice
1 tsp Shirley J Chicken Bouillon or 2 tsp chicken bouillon granules
1 bay leaf
1. Combine water, rice, bouillon and bay leaf in slow cooker.
2. Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours, until rice absorbs liquid and is fluffy.
I am a huge fan of brown rice. But not a fan of how long it takes to cook. I ALWAYS forget to put it on the stove top 45 minutes before dinner. So we end up making minute brown rice a lot. Which is fine. But if you want to use your slow cooker like a pseudo-rice maker you sure can. It actually works quite nicely. Keep in mind, the larger your slow cooker, the quicker the rice will be done. 4 stars.

Do you need to increase the liquid-to-rice ratio if you add veggies? I want to add carrots and onions from the beginning and then fresh spinach about 1/2 hour before rice is done. Is this the right way to do it?
I wouldn’t change the ratio. I would just add in the carrots and onions at the beginning like you said with the other ingredients. Let me know how it goes!
