Rice Cooker " Risotto" With Carrots and Onions

This is a very simple risotto-style side dish that I make in an on-off rice cooker. I use Knorr chicken broth powder if I don't have chicken stock handy. If your broth is unsalted, you will need to add salt to taste.

Ready In:
45mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 cup arborio rice (risotto-style (Arborio, Italian rice or even Calrose)
  • 3 cups chicken stock (or vegetable stock)

directions

  • Put oil and butter in rice cooker pot, switch on.
  • When butter is melted, add carrots and onions. Cook until softened, 3-5 minutes.
  • Add rice, stir until it is coated with oil.
  • Add chicken stock and switch to cook.
  • Check consistency when rice cooker switches to warm. If it is too chewy, add 1/4 cup water and switch on again. This is very altitude dependent.

    We used CalRose and added some fresh chopped parsley. It did need a little more broth, but was yummy, easy and great with chicken. Next time I will add a teaspoon of curry powder for a different flavor - Thanks Lille!
