Another rice Cooker recipe to try:

Butternut Squash Risotto

2T Olive Oil
2T butter
2/3 c fine chopped onion
1 c plus 2 T arborio rice
1.5 c squash puree
1.5 c water
1.5 c chicken broth

parmesan cheese to serve (optional)

Turn rice cooker to Cook or Quick Cook and heat the olive oil and butter
Saute onion about 2 min.
Add rice and stir to coat the grains with oil; cook, stirring a few times, for about 5 minutes, until everything is hot.
Add the squash puree, water and stock and stir well to combine. Close and reset to cook on porridge cycle OR the regular cycle (about 20 min.) (If you have a fuzzy logic cooker, you can use the porridge setting)
When the machine switches to Keep Warm, or your 20 min. are up, stir the risotto. Most of the liquid should be gone, and the rice should be cooked al dente. If needed, cook a few minutes longer.


I'm going to try this tomorrow in my non-fuzzy logic rice cooker.

Water to grain ratios for cooking other whole grains in your rice cooker:

Oatmeal - 2 parts water to one part oatmeal.
Barley - 3 to 1
Wild rice - 3 to 1 (maybe 2 1/2 to 1?)
Brown or green lentils - 2 to 1
Split peas - 3 to 1


And now for some protein: EGGS in your rice cooker!!

First, Soft-cooked eggs (Onsen Tamago--Japanese Hotspring Eggs):

1.) Gently place Eggs in a Rice Cooker
2.) Fill the Rice Cooker with water till the Eggs are fully submerged
3.) Set the Rice Cooker to the Keep Warm setting
4.) Forget about for 2 hours, then serve

Second, hard-cooked eggs:
1) Wet 2 sheets of kitchen towels and wring out excess water.
2) Put them in the rice cooker pot
3) Put 2 or more eggs on top of wet kitchen towels
4) Close the lid of rice cooker and press 'cook'.
5) When the 'cook' button turns to 'warm' - eggs should be ready if they were in room temperature to start with, but if they were from the fridge, keep cooked eggs in the 'warm' function for a while to fully hard cook the eggs.
6) Viola!! Hard cooked eggs

Here is another technique for actually hard boiling eggs in your rice cooker while you are making rice:

(1) Wash and clean 3 or 4 eggs thoroughly
(2) Place them in a shallow bowl and add a tablespoon of water into the bowl
(3) Place a steamer insert over the rice, and the bowl of eggs into the steamer insert
(4) Cook your rice as per normal
(5) Voila, when your rice is done so are your hard boiled eggs. The hard boiled eggs will turn out perfect each time and every time. Ready to peel and eat.

A second technique for hard boiling eggs while your rice cooks:
If you are cooking rice in a rice cooker you can also cook hard boiled eggs at the same time. After washing the rice and adding the proper amount of water, place a couple eggs in the cooker so that the water covers the eggs. Cook your rice as usual. The eggs will be hard-boiled by the time the rice is done. There will be a bit of cooked rice stuck on the outside, so pick off any big chunks. If you are going to eat them with your rice or use in a side dish, peel them. If you are going to save them for later, wash the outside and stick them in the fridge.

In the summer, it doesn't heat the kitchen or house. It's so easy and convenient, and much faster than a slow cooker. Plus, what's not to like about that keep warm feature??

this is where we'll share our favorite Rice Cooker recipes....recipes adapted just for the rice cooker!
