What can you cook in a rice cooker? Learn Chef Allison Schaaf's 3 favorite (non-rice) items to make in this handy appliance!
Do you have a rice cooker? Did you know you can use it for more than just rice? Meal prep expert Allison Schaaf shares 3 ways she uses her rice cooker.
Rice cookers make cooking rice so easy – no more burning rice! But they’re also useful for so much more. Here are 3 of my favorite ways to use my rice cooker, beyond rice!
What can you cook in a rice cooker?
1. Quinoa: Other grains like quinoa cook really well in the rice cooker too! The best part is it’s totally hands-off.
2. Polenta or Grits: The texture will be a little different without the constant stirring you do with stovetop polenta but it’s still good and SO much easier!
3. Oatmeal: One of my favorite breakfasts is pumpkin oats (pumpkin + oats + dried fruit & cinnamon). I’ve started cooking both regular and steel cut oats (pre-soaked) in my rice cooker and they turn out delicious!
Bonus – The rice cooker is also great for warming up leftover rice! I just store it in the rice cooker bowl and reheat it with a bit of water.
