I've made this at least 5 times now.. what a great easy go to recipe.. with a great taste!! I would have never have thought I could cook rice pilaf in the rice cooker.. but this recipe proves that its most possible. Only thing I changed on the last couple of times is that I added more garlic (we love garlic in this house) .. you cannot go wrong with this recipe!!

This worked great for us. Only change I made was sub'd chopped red bell peppers for the almonds. After the onion & garlic was done cooking, I stirred in the other vegys & turned off the burner till I was ready to mix into the rice cooker. The mushrooms & peppers were the right consistency for us. You're right the bottom does get brown, if you don't like it crusty you may want to stir 1-2 times during cooking. Awesome recipe, thanks for sharing.

What a great recipe! Went well with the Hawaiian meatball recipe I found on Zaar :) Would make again for sure. I love findings ways to add veggies in to other parts of the meal! Next time I would probably add even more onion, a chicken bouillon cube, a saute the mushrooms (canned) with the onions & garlic.

Over all we really enjoyed it. I think I too will boost the garlic and maybe switch to shallots in stead of regular onions and maybesome S&P to mushrooms as they saute. Love the easy of the rice cooker (my fave new toy):) Thank you for the posting.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I sauteed the mushrooms along with the onion. I also added a splash of soya sauce. Simple and delicious! Thanks!

This is a fabulous rice dish! I didn't have mushrooms - no big loss but feel sure it's a smidge better to include. After the onion and garlic were sauteed, I put the rice in the pan with the two ingredients for a minute or so then added all to my rice cooker with at least 2 1/2 cups of chicken broth - delicious!

This was so easy to make!! I made it with chicken breast tenderloins in the steamer basket, sprinkled with oregano & Basil, and the pilaf in the pot. All was done at the same time, and my family LOVED it!!!

Great rice! I only use my rice cooker to cook plain old rice and would cook all my flavored rice on the stovetop. This was way easier. Used a shallot instead of the onion, no almonds and reduced the amount of stock (I like my rice fluffy). Sauteed everything before throwing it into the rice pot and added a handful of chopped baby spinach. I like to use the rice paddle to fluff the rice up once it's done. It helps to get out the excess moisture. When it was time to eat I mixed in some fresh parsley. Delicious!! Thanks for posting!
