Pandora's Feast - Veggie Rice Cooker Dish

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Demandy

This is from wikicookbooks. I have never tried it but here for safe keeping. Pandora's Feast is a complete vegan meal that can be served several times a week due to the ease with which it can be modified. The meal is easy to prepare in a rice cooker.

This turned out perfectly! For my first time making it I followed the recipe closely - but I did rinse and drain the rice first. I'm in Korea so the rice here is a little different (it's short grain and rather glutenous): brown and black rice have to be rinsed. It was very good as is, but I think could be seasoned to taste very easily in any direction - basil, cajan, curry... I also think a splash of a nice quality vinegar would be nice. And next time I will use more garlic - I used 1 close this time. Very easy and very fast - oh, and the veggies cooked perfectly! Bonus!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Add the brown rice and water to the rice cooker. If you have "Thai sweet black rice" or "Chinese forbidden black rice", replace about 10% of your brown rice with this and your finished product will be a lovely purple and will have a different taste.
  2. The beans should either be pre-soaked (preferred) or from a can. Drain, rinse, and add these to the rice cooker. If you're presoaking, the beans need about 8 hours to soak.
  3. If using, add the garlic the cooker.
  4. If using, add the sweet potato, squash, beet or potato, chop into cubes 1cm x 1cm for optimal cooking.
  5. On a fuzzy logic cooker, set the cooker to the brown rice setting and turn it on. For an on/off cooker, turn it on.
  6. If using, chop the kale.
  7. In about 20–40 minutes, your cooker will complete cooking the rice. When the cooker is finished, open the lid, add the kale, and wait about another minute or two.
  8. Open and serve. Top with oil, yeast, soy sauce and/or sesame seeds, to taste.
