Recipes that can be prepared in a rice cooker (regular on/off one or a fuzzy logic one). A fuzzy logic rice cooker is incredibly versatile!
I also recommend the book The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook : 250 No-Fail Recipes for Pilafs, Risottos, Polenta, Chilis, Soups, Porridges, Puddings and More, from Start to Finish in Your Rice Cooker by Beth Hensperger, Julie Kaufmann for many rice cooker recipes.
A very simple, cheap, filling side or main dish. I make this in my dorm room, all my friends come running at the smell and are delighted at the taste. It costs me about $2.25 to make. For more heat, use Hot Ro-tel.
We love this recipe! After looking at a few other paprikash recipes I saw that a lot of them had peas in them. So I added about a cup of frozen peas to the recipe and it turned out great! I also skipped the step of browning the chicken and onion and just threw everything in and hit cook. I highly recommend it to those with a rice cooker.
Make certain to use only pearl barley for this. This can also be made on top of the stove. The mixture will thicken even more upon standing or refrigeration. My family loves this dish, it's a nice change from rice, hope you enjoy also! Add in the saffron, it really makes a difference in taste!
Rice Cooker version of Jambalaya was adapted from a recipe from The 100 Greatest Dishes of Louisiana Cookery. I made quite a number of changes from the original recipe according to my family's tastes, ingredient availability and cooking method in order to cook it in a rice cooker.
A wonderful African inspired yellow rice dish that my Mum always makes. I have adapted her recipe slightly - and this cooks very well in a rice cooker - a gadget I would NOT be without! If you don't have any fruit chutney available, add a handful of sultanas & toasted flaked almonds and maybe a tablespoon of peach or apricot jam too. A wonderful accompaniment for most types of stews, cassroles, curries & tagines.
After tasting this at a neighbor's Super Bowl party one year, I quickly scribbled down the recipe. This is a fairly simple dish to throw together and is a great accompaniment to Tex-Mex style dishes, although this isn't pretending to be any sort of authentic dish from any one particular region. I have made it many times over the years and this is a great dish for a potluck. Mahatma saffron rice comes in shiny yellow foil tubes in the rice section of your grocery store. I usually follow the microwave instructions for preparing the rice. I serve this as a side dish, but I think a Vegetarian who eats dairy would be able to enjoy this as a meal as well.
This is a mild, slightly sweet dish I concocted because I wanted to combine an Acorn squash with some ground turkey and barley. Barley is my new favorite grain, this is a very healthy combo!
Note: You can probably put the diced squash in uncooked and it will cook with the rest of the food, but I wasn't brave enough to try it on my first attempt. My research found that steamed squash can cook in 25 minutes, so it should have plenty of time to cook in this dish without pre-nuking.
I love this recipe. You can use fresh or frozen peas with this. Using fresh peas, add them at the beginning. If you are using very young and tender fresh peas or frozen- add at the end. You can expect this rice to have the texture and consistency of a creamy risotto. From The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook.
