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.
Now that the word is out that chocolate is good for you (BUT only if not mixed with milk) why not have it for breakfast? This makes a nice change of pace from plain oatmeal. Karl did not think this was sweet enough, but when he sprinkled a little brown sugar over he was happy. Serve with ricemilk or soymilk to get the full advantage of those cocoa flavinoids.
OK- I know, it's not really a risotto if it's made in the rice cooker... I DON'T CARE. It still tastes good! (This recipe uses US measurements as I now have a US cup!) No oil in this one, the only fat is from the salmon and the cheese. Good way to use up a small piece of salmon. This is very filling but still makes 4 decent servings!
This is simple, while you are making your salad, slicing the bread, pouring your wine, and setting the table, your meal will be made all in twenty minutes. This does not come out starchy, it cooked exactly right. Give it a try in your rice cooker soon.
Please remember the sauce you use should be the one that you like the best. Measure accurately the water, sauce, and the pasta. Do not think heaping is the same as two cups, if you do, then you are risking a starchy saucey result. Also I have used rigatoni and penne always with good result.
This recipe is for a rice cooker. I hate to see an appliance go to waste because it will only do one thing (like cook rice only), so I made this up and the family loved it. I've made up several different recipes for that reason. I made up this recipe because I love my rice cooker but i hate to have appliances that only do one thing.
I am getting tired I guess so when I recently tried another cooking method for a favorite recipe and it was fast, easy and fun I wanted to branch out so I have been working out some other recipes for the same low work approcah. I prefer to add in extras after the polenta is cooked (like cheese for example). Good luck!
Why not use the appliance that sits in the cabinet for more things than the expected. When you have guests this is a great way to make eggs and keep them warm for when people get up in waves. Good for a buffet breakfast too! Might also be a great way for the dorm kids to make their own breakfast?
This is an old stand by for me, its quick and easy and can be served as a main dish or side dish. Its great with a nice middle eastern salad and a side of yoghurt and also goes well with baked lamb or roasts.This is a great potluck dish as well.Seasoning are approximate, you can adjust to suit your tastes.
This is from a wonderful book, The Ultimate Rice Cooker Cookbook, by Hensperger and Kaufmann. It makes a wonderful, creamy oatmeal with no watching or muss or fuss. Definitely use steel-cut oats, which have a wonderful texture, so superior to the regular stuff. I usually use dried cranberries, raisins or currants, instead of the dates.
