Orchard rice: recipe for electric rice cooker

1 Ago

One of the most popular recipes of this blog, one of the first that I published, was the Rice with chicken, recipe for electric rice cooker. Recently, this recipe has gave me lot of happiness. Statistics put it on the top of the ten more viewed posts, before the Turkey sirloin in apple sauce and Buttercream: cake cover, in this order. In order to answer to the needs of more electric rice cooker´s new recipes I´ll cook up some of them as soon as be possible. For the time being, I leave you with a rice recipe that combines the best products of the orchard. Vegetables, I guess, are available all the year in supermarkets and greengrocers, at least here in Spain.  

The recipe that I shares today has not animal proteins at all, but you can add some chicken, turkey, pork or Spanish chorizo; or if you prefer seafood, then add some shrimps, crab or your favorite fish. Whatever, meat or seafood, you should add it to the stir-fry and cook before mix with the rice and incorporate all to the electric rice cooker. This recipe doesn´t contain this kind of proteins because it was the accompaniment of this Pork sirloin with sweet mustard sauce. Now, let´s get into the kitchen and try this recipe.

  10. Turn on the rice cooker and it will do the rest.

Remember that our ingredients can´t be hot, specially the broth, in order to avoid our rice cooker ends before the rice cooks. As soon as the rice cooker alert you it has finished, unplug, let it rest for 8 to 10 minutes and then stir and serve. A delicious recipe with all the nutrients of these vegetables.

If you decide to add meat or seafood, the amount of the main ingredients (vegetables not rice) must be the half. Enjoy it!
