- Spray your rice cooker pot with a non-stick cooking spray. This works wonders at keeping your rice from sticking and burning.
- Add your brown rice and water. While the typical rice-to-water ratio for white rice is one part rice to two parts water, brown rice works better if you go with one part rice to two and a half parts water.
- Add salt to taste.
- On a cutting board, press the flat edge of a knife on the cloves of garlic to squash them. Remove and discard the papery skin and drop the smashed cloves into the cooker.
- Add olive oil.
- Cover the pot and turn on the cooker. Expect brown rice to take a little longer to cook than white rice (about 30 to 40 minutes instead of 20).
