"This side or a vegetarian main is loaded with flavor and texture. I made this in a rice cooker if you Add more water will increase the cooking time and produce softer rice; reducing the amount of water will produce firmer rice. But once you've found the ratio that's right for you, it'll be very easy to have perfect rice your way. Yes you can make stove top as well. Be sure not to remove the lid till done cooking."

"Very yummy and very easy to make with a rice cooker. Just chop it all up and drop it in the rice cooker."
"I must admit I'm not a big fan of our rice cooker, and have never thought to use it this way. So thanks Rita for such a great, easy recipe! I guess I'll be pulling it out more often. I was also drawn to this recipe because it's very low fat! I used "Recipe #374040" for the spice. It certainly wasn't bland, and I'd caution using juice instead of broth as one reviewer mentioned, only because we found it sweet as it was. I used veg broth and brown rice. Unfortunately had to sub parsnip for the sweet potato - still great. I doubled the broth per the other review, but it still wasn't enough - ended up using 4 cups of broth (!). Might be because my rice cooker is an older model large one. So I really should have just used enough broth to go 3/4" over the rice as written in the directions and ignored the cup measurement. Next time! Made for ZWT 5 (Cooks w/Dirty Faces Team)."
"I will have to make this again!! Used brown rice, so I doubled the broth. no raisins, and a few tbsp coconut milk. DELISH!! Used Recipe #374040 for the spice. This has me looking around for other great rice cooker recipes. Thank you so much for posting. Made for ZWT 5."
"my hubby has been asking me to make a dish using jerk seasoning for a while now. i thought this would be perfect and it was!!! thanks!"
"Very good and nutritious rice, which I made using Recipe #156341, as suggested. I don't have a rice cooker, so made it on top of the stove, with perfect results. The only thing I changed/omitted was the raisins, because I don't really like them. I very much enjoyed the spice and the interesting array of ingredients! I found it had good flavour, and for me this is a good dish in itself, tho I served it to my husband along with Recipe #373124. Thank you, Rita! Made for ZWT5"
"This was excellent, the flavour was very good, I made it twice this week. thanks for sharing."
"This was pretty good. It did have a little bit of a blandness, but that might just be a personal thing. We will make it again, but next time, maybe use some pineapple juice and buillion instead of chicken broth. Thanks!"
"Well Ms Rita - you've done it again. This is an amazing recipe!! I was worried about how the many flavors would work together...shoulda known better!! It was sooooo good I couldn't stop eating it! It had just the right amount of heat, spice and sweet. Loved it! Thanks for a great dish - yum!! acerast"
"We had this tonight; made on the stove. Forgot to add the chicken broth, used water and it was plain tasting. However, salt and pepper brought up the flavour. Cilantro and scallions were added at the end. Thanks!"
