Vegetable Rice Pilaf in the Rice Cooker

Recipe by  

"This works with any veggies that are about to go bad and you need to get rid of. The ingredients are basic and the recipe is easy to make since you can do it in the rice cooker. My husband and I were very impressed with how good this turned out, especially since I hardly did any work at all!"

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Cooking time will vary depending on your rice cooker. Mine had it done in about 50 minutes, which gave me ample time to cook other things.
  • When making the paste, you can substitute the 1/4 cup water with sour cream, butter, softened cream cheese, etc. for various flavors. Add water as necessary to make the slightly thin paste, though.

This was simple and easy... but I would half the rice, double the veggies, and use a tad more liquid than the recipe said to use. We're trying to lower our cholesterol, so the more veggies I can squeeze into our day the better. It went great with the Thai Coconut Soup recipe from Allrecipes. And I was excited to use bok choy for the first time in a recipe. I didn't use the leafy part of it, don't know if you're supposed to or not. Thanks for sharing!

This isn't bad, although I thought it could use a little more seasoning. I didn't use chicken bullion, however, so perhaps that is the problem; I used 2 cans of chicken stock and it seemed to work well. I did have some issues with my rice cooker; perhaps the amount is too much for it? I had to keep unplugging and starting it on cook again. It does make lots of rice for two people anyway, so I believe I'll halve it next time. I agree with the other reviewer who suggests more liquid, less rice, and more veggies. Thanks for the recipe!
