Zojirushi Rice Cooker

An early gift is our Zojirushi Micom Rice Cooker & Warmer NS-WAC10 rice cooker.

Zojirushi offers some recipes but with some reading it appears that just about any rice or grain can be cooked in it.

Tried this one tonight.  I would recommend spicing it up a bit more with some cinnamon and clove.

Chick Peas and Rice.


1 medium onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups long grain brown rice, cooked
1 (16 ounce) can chickpeas, drained
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped  (fresh)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Directions:

Saute the onion and garlic in olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until tender.

Stir in the cooked rice and the remaining ingredients. Cover the skillet, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
