So you have just purchased a bag of brown rice (preferably a bag of our delicious Forbidden organic brown rice). Time is of the essence so the big question here is can you cook brown rice in a rice cooker?
The answer is yes, yes you can! Brown rice cooked in a rice cooker tastes exactly the same as if you boiled it in hot water and even has the same consistency and won’t become gluggy as long as you cook it correctly.
Be sure to just disregard the water line that you find in a generic rice cooker for cooking your brown rice and instead utilize 2 cups of water to every ½ cup of standard brown rice. The only big difference between brown and white rice cooking in the rice cooker is that brown rice will take slightly longer to cook.
Finally its worth mentioning that Forbidden foods brown rice is par-boiled making it much easier and faster to cook for those that want to be quick in the kitchen. We recommend with our brown rice to use 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice.
