How to Make Rice in the Crockpot
Practical Stewardship explains the secrets to making rice in the crockpot. I love a crockpot. There's nothing like being able to throw in ingredients, walk away and let it do the work for you.

3 1/4 cups of water (for more flavor, you can sub part or all of the water with broth depending on what you are serving the rice with)
1 1/2 cups organic brown rice, I use Basmati (basically it's a generous 2 parts water to 1 part rice). The amount of cooked rice yielded depends on the type of rice you use.
Generously grease the slow cooker with coconut or olive oil.
Place the rice in the bottom of the slow cooker.
Slowly pour in the water.
Cover and cook on high for about 2 1/2 hours or on low for about 5 hours or until the rice is soft and the water is absorbed. Every crock-pot cooks differently, so WITHOUT lifting the lid, check the crock-pot every hour the first time you make this.
