emoticon I missed the wild rice part! Guess I was in too much of a hurry - yes, there would be more liquid required. Sorry - but for regular rice as well as quinoa and other grains, it is usually 2 to 1 with some for the pot.

I think I may just try the wild rice in mine emoticon

Hi, Thanks for that rule of thumb. I'm thinking that perhaps you need more for wild rice, as the minimum that I add initially is 1 1/2 times the amt of rice. Sometimes I had twice the amt of rice, and it may still come out crunchy, Anyway, I don't want to "correct" you, as you could well be right. But, wild rice could be different. Of course, one could read the directions, but that is only as a last resort :-)

Rule of thumb, add the same amount of liquid as rice and a quarter cup "for the pot" as my Mom always says... so an extra quarter cup... if you are making lots of rice (4 cups or more) i add a half cup more of liquid

Hi,

I almost never use my rice cooker but am considering buying one of the expensive Japanese ones (I know-that makes no sense). There is one thin that I make over and over that I love. I use chicken broth and use it instead of water and add it to wild rice. I put in a big handful of dried sweetened cranberries and stir it up. That's it. That's the whole recipe. Sometimes I have to put in extra broth because I don't put in enough. So, make sure to put in enough the first time. (wish I had paid attention to exact amounts).

Wild rice is expensive, so it's not a cheap meal, but it sure is simple.

I have had a rice cooker for years, but I only make my Asian rice or my grains in it (Quinoa, Bulgar...)
I do know that Pinterest has many recipes. http://pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=rice%2

I recently purchased a rice cooker and was wondering if anyone had some good rice recipes they would like to share. Preferably healthy ones. emoticon
