This morning, I found an article in my Facebook newsfeed from Epicurious called How To Make Dinner in a Rice Cooker. Considering I make dinner in a rice cooker at least once a week, I figured I’d check it out.
They have some great ideas in this article – including a few that I haven’t tried. But it inspired me to share some of the simple rice cooker meals that I make.
Combine in rice cooker, set it and forget it.
Buttered Rice With Toasted Seaweed
Enough toasted Nori to mix into the rice
Cook the rice, add the Nori to the finished rice in the bowl. (aprox 2 sheets)
Coconut Rice Pudding
Set the rice cooker, remove the finished pudding and serve. You can serve this hot or cold.
Steel cut Oats with Frozen Berries
This is a wintertime favorite. I like this when it’s so cold outside that I need something warm and filling with a touch of berries to remind me that summer will come again.
Sometimes I'll dress the bowl with some real maple syrup, other times just a pat of Earth Balance (or butter).
I'm a home cook with a lifelong passion for learning, exploring and experimenting in my kitchen. You can find me at @Debs1 on Twitter and @Debs121212 on Instagram.
