For my college graduation, my wonderful older sister got me a rice cooker! I AM IN LOVE. It is without a doubt the most amazing thing I own…
It can cook rice, quinoa, oatmeal, and it can even steam vegetables! I don’t know what I did before I owned this amazing machine. Best of all: it makes the best sushi rice so I can start make sushi again! Making sushi seems REALLY hard but after you do it once, I promise it is so easy. I will post pictures of sushi as soon as I remember to take them (accidentally ate the sushi too fast…oopsies).
I made a really simple and delicious rice dish a few nights ago with plain old white rice.
I made the rice in the rice cooker (so easy!) and then chopped up some scallions, mint, and added some canned corn (I am a horrible Iowan). I also added some fresh lemon juice, some lemon zest, and a little salt and peper on top.
It took about 30 minutes. Unbelievably easy. I originally wanted to make this with quinoa like Giada’s recipe but of course, like an idiot, I forgot to buy quinoa at the grocery store so I was stuck with what I had.
If there is anything you should put on your list for your next birthday, anniversary, holiday, etc, it is a rice cooker. Enjoy!!
