This French onion brown rice is easy, healthy, delicious & make ahead (if using an Aroma rice cooker).
French onion brown rice is the BEST brown rice ever. Loaded with rich, beefy onion flavor, this good-for-you grain will become a family fave!
Those of you who are my age (50ish:-) and who grew up going to church in the South know exactly what I mean when I refer to “church lady rice” or “mushroom rice.” This rice was always on the menu at church potlucks. It was always a favorite of mine, but boy was it full of fat, calories and carbs!
Fast forward to today. I’ve adapted church lady rice to be made easily, ahead of time, and healthier~in an Aroma rice cooker. It is SO yummy and SO much better for you than the old timey version.
The Aroma rice cooker is literally the way I’ve been making rice for the last 5-6 years. I do have an Instant Pot but still prefer using my Aroma rice cooker for rice. The delay timer allows me to throw the rice, water, and seasonings in the cooker, set the timer for when I want rice to be ready to eat, and come home to perfect rice every time.
In the video below, I share how easy it is to program this yummy French onion brown rice in an Aroma rice cooker and come home to hot, ready to eat goodness!
Cook’s note: This recipe uses a rice cooker, so for those who don’t have one, simply adapt this to your cooking method. I’ve used this Aroma rice cooker for so long that I don’t even remember how to make rice any other way!
I purchased my Aroma rice cooker at Costco, but the same one can be found on amazon.com and walmart.com. It is one of the kitchen tools that I can’t live without; I highly recommend it if you love rice and want it when you want it.
I hope this post is helpful and that you try this recipe. If so, I’d love to hear what you think. As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
