DIRECTIONS

  • In the morning, measure grains and lentils into rice cooker, adding water to cover. Vary whole grains as desired, to total 1/2 cup. Allow to soak all day. (The soaking will allow the whole grains to cook tender in the normal rice cooker cycle).
  • About 45 minutes before dinner, drain off the soaking water (this is only necessary if your are using beans--to throw most of the gas-producing stuff down the drain). Add water to 3/4-inch above the surface of the grain. Measure by placing the tip of your index finger on the surface of the rice--water should be up to the first knuckle.
  • Sprinkle in salt if desired. Start the rice cooker. It will be ready by dinner time.
