I'm trying to eat more brown rice ....it's good for us. Trying to find ways to make brown rice appealing. I had sliced mushrooms in the frig and chicken broth. Put this together tonight before I went to yoga, when I came back the family ate almost the whole thing. My husband said he saved me about 1/3 cup. It's very easy to make, all in the rice cooker. Time to cook depends on your rice cooker.
