Number of Servings: 8



I sometimes use my slow cooker as a "stall cooker." There are days that I need to run the boys out the door for practice and love to have dinner ready to go when we walk in the door. I don't have 4 or 8 hours to slow cook but don't want to wait 45 minutes for rice to cook. Bingo--I use the slow cooker. Two hours in a slow cooker and you will have fluffy brown rice for dinner.

No shallots? Use 1/2 small yellow onion instead.
Don't skip the step of boiling the stock--this will help break down the husk of the rice, which will prevent mushy rice.


Coat the slow cooker insert with nonstick cooking spray.

Bring vegetable stock to a boil in a small saucepan. Place all the ingredients in the slow cooker, cover and set on low heat. Cook for 2 hours.

Serving Size: Makes 8 1/2-cup servings

    I do not understand all the unnecessary remarks. Perhaps a rice cooker is easier; however, if you don't have one.....use a crockpot. My suggestion - if you don't have a positive comment....don't comment! Thanks & have a blessed day! - 6/27/12

    Mmmmm...going to have to try this! I bet it'd work great for a wild rice mix too! My mom always freezes her unused rice into small portions to use for a quick lunch or single serving supper...make up some stir fry veg or something and you're good to go! - 9/10/12

    Just made this today and it is delicious!! I had to add about 25 minutes on to the time-that is probably because of my crock pot. - 5/9/12

    Great! I absolutely hate hanging around waiting for rice to cook. This way I can cook enough for a few meals, leave it and come back later knowing I haven't set the stove on fire because I forgot all about it. LOL! - 5/9/12
