Making Rice in the Slow Cooker

A New Year's Resolution is to (try) and eat vegetarian at breakfast and lunch.  This includes eating whole grain bread and rice rather than white rice or items made with white flour.  Today I made a blend of wild and whole grain brown rice in the slow cooker while doing other things around the house - it was so easy.

To begin, I sprayed the inside of the slow cooker with non-stick spray.  Then I combined one cup of the rice with two cups of water and a 1/4 tsp. salt in the crock pot.  I turned the cooker on high and let the rice cook for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally.   Super simple.  I'll definitely do this again.
