Brown Rice in a Rice Cooker

If you don't have a rice cooker - get one. I love brown rice, but hate to cook it on the stove. I can never seem to get it to come out right. But, since I purchased a rice cooker - perfect brown rice every time. I make the full amount and divide and freeze to make quick meals.

Dovetailing Tip: Make as much rice as your cooker will hold. You will use 1 1/2 cups today, and 1 1/2 cups for Meal 3. Divide and freeze the rest, if you have leftovers.

Yield: 6 cups cooked rice
Prep Time:
Cook Time:
Total Time:


2 cups organic brown rice
3 cups water
1/2 teaspoon salt


Rinse and drain 2 cups of brown rice.
Put it in the rice cooker. Instead of filling the cooker with water to the "2 cup" mark, fill it to the "3 cup" mark in your rice cooker. That usually means 3 cups of water for the 2 cups of brown rice.
Add a ½ teaspoon of sea salt.
Turn cooker on.

Here are calculations for various amounts or rice.
1 cup of rice + 1.5 cups of water = 3 cups cooked rice
2 cups of rice + 3 cups of water = 6 cups cooked rice
3 cups of rice + 4.5 cups of water = 9 cups cooked rice
