Rice Cooker Pilaf With Brown Rice, Lentils, and Wild Rice

Rice Cooker Pilaf With Brown Rice, Lentils, and Wild Rice created by Futtimanette

This is a quick and easy pilaf with my favorite spice--cardamom! If you don't have cardamom on hand, you can omit it--the pilaf is still delicious without it. I improvised it one evening when I was short of canned chicken broth and time. I like the recipe because it combines two of my favorite rices with lentils. The lentils add protein. The dish is a perfect accompaniment to chicken baked with a generous sprinkling of cardamom.

ingredients

directions

  • Remove the inner pot from the rice cooker.
  • Place the rices and lentils in a sieve, rinse under running water.
  • Add the onion, the rices, and the lentils to the inner pot. Add the water, the pepper, the cardamom, and the chicken bouillon granules. Stir ingredients.
  • Return inner pot to rice cooker and press "cook." If pilaf is not sufficiently done after it switches from "cook" to "warm," re-close the rice cooker and keep on "warm" for another 5-10 minutes. Cooking time should be approximately 45 minutes, your rice cooker may vary.

    This is ridiculously good, especially in winter. The cardamom gives it a rich warmth. I am using a Zojirushi rice cooker (with induction), so I modify it as follows: Put 1 1/2 Zoji cups brown jasmine rice and 1/2 Zoji cup wild rice in cooker. (Zoji cups are smaller than US cups, equivalent to about 3/4 C) Add water to the 2 cup brown rice line. Then add the rest of the ingredients exactly as listed above. I use soup base in place of the bouillon, but either should be fine.
