French Onion Rice (Rice Cooker)

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

I adapted this from a bag of Publix supermarket brand Extra Long Grain rice. I love it because it has 4 ingredients but has so much flavor. It's wonderful to use to sop up broth or gravy from entrees...

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup long grain rice
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can condensed beef consomme
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can condensed French onion soup
  • 1 teaspoon butter


  1. Wash the cup of rice thoroughly - five times should do it to get the water clear. Don't skip this step! (Note: use a regular English measuring cup, not the plastic cup that comes with your rice cooker).
  2. Put the rice and the soups in the rice cooker. Float the butter on top. Close the cooker. If using a fuzzy logic cooker press the regular rice menu option and start, or just press ON if using a kettle style cooker. It should take anywhere from 55 minutes to an hour to complete.

great recipe and so easy! i didnt have a can of onion soup so i used a can of reduced sodium consomme and added 3 tbsp of dry onion flakes - it worked wonderfully.

i would also like to underline the importance of rinsing the rice several times before you put it in the cooker - it helps prevent it from being too starchy.

definitely a keeper though.

I make this also but without the butter and in the oven instead of a rice cooker - it's wonderful - I just wonder the calories without the rice!
