So much more than just a Rice Cooker!

 

 

 

All you ever need and want to know about the

rice cooker plus!

 

So you’ve bought a Rice Cooker Plus? Sure,

it’ll give you perfect fluffy rice PLUS so much more!!

 

You can use it to make Macaroni Cheese,

steamed vegetables, soups, instant pasta and potatoes, pudding, oatmeal, cakes,

just about anything without worrying about it boiling over in the microwave and

making a mess.

 

 

 

My

tip: For Basmati rice I use 1 cup of rice to 2 cups of boiling water, cook on

high for 8 mins then stand for approx 5 mins with the lid on! (it will stay

warm in the container for much longer if needed) It will give you perfect

fluffy rice PLUS ….

 

 

 

RICE

Place rice in rice cooker. Add boiling water

until ½ inch above the level of the rice. Do not fill more than ½ full with dry

rice.

 

Set clear inner lid into base with outer rim

upright.

 

Set lid into rice cooker aligning tabs with

handles.

 

Pull locks up and over tabs to click in

place.

 

Cook on full power for approximately 10-15

mins depending on quantity of rice.

 

Leave to stand for at least 5 minutes

 

Starch from the rice will be separated and

left on clear inner lid.

 

Steam will build up so use an oven mitt to

remove lid so that steam escapes away from your face.

 

Cooking times will vary slightly with

different types of rice

 

 

 

BASIC RICE

1 cup Rice OR Wild Rice

 

2 cup Water

 

 

 

Place rice and water in Rice Cooker Plus.

Attach both lids.

 

Microwave on high for 5 minutes.

 

Microwave on medium power for 15 minutes.

 

Let stand in microwave 10 minutes

 

 

 

To make more rice, simply double or triple

the water and the rice amounts. This rice cooker can easily make up to 3 cups

of rice!

 

 

 

BROWN RICE

1 cup Brown Rice

 

2 ½ cups water

 

 

 

Place rice and water in Rice Cooker Plus.

Attach both lids.

 

Microwave on high for 10 minutes.

 

Microwave on medium power for 25 minutes.

 

Let stand in microwave 10 minutes

 

 

 

Note: Brown rice can be tricky. You may need

to play around with the time and power settings to find the right combination.

This is what works on mine.

 

 

 

Note: Most microwaves have the capability to

run a string of times without having to monitor the microwave. Each microwave

is different. For mine: Cook Time, 5 minutes; then Cook Time 15 minutes, power

5 (for 50%); then Cook Time 10 minutes, power 0; then start. Call if you can’t

do yours?I’ll help you figure it out!

 

 

 

COOKING POTATOES AND VEGETABLES

Place 1kg of potatoes i.e. Charlottes in the

rice cooker.

 

Do not add any water as potatoes are 70%

water content so the potatoes will cook in their own juices and their flavour

will be retained.

 

Do not prick the skins.

 

You do not need to add any salt.

 

Cook 1kg of small or medium potatoes for

12mins. Times will vary according to the power of the microwave

 

Some water will be released from the

potatoes so drain off.

 

Steam will be produced so lift lid off

carefully away from your face using an oven mitt.

 

For smaller quantities of potatoes adjust

times accordingly.

 

Do not cook less than 6 small potatoes at

any time.

 

 

 

For

other vegetables with a high water content i.e. carrots or Swede the same

process can be used. Again don’t cook too small a quantity at any one time.

 

 

CREAMY ONE POT MASHED POTATOES

Peel and slice/cube potatoes as usual. Place in Rice Cooker Plus. (Fill about

half way for a family of 4.)

 

Add butter (amount depends on your taste and the amount of spuds you use)

 

Add enough milk so that half of the potatoes are covered.

 

Microwave until potatoes are soft, about 10 minutes.

 

Mash with potato masher. Add more milk or butter if needed. Add

salt/pepper/seasoning to taste.

 

 

Variations: Add 1-2 whole, peeled garlic cloves to peeled and cubed potatoes

and cook as recipe directs. Add sour cream with seasonings.

 

 

MOLTEN CHOCOLATE LAVA CAKE

One box of chocolate cake mix ingredients to make the chocolate cake (from the

back of the box)

 

One can of chocolate frosting

 

 

Empty cake mix and cake mix ingredients into Rice Cooker Plus and mix together.

 

 

Add ½ the can of frosting with Small Scoop.

 

Microwave for about 8-10 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the

centre of the cake comes out clean.

 

 

You can use any kind of cake mix and frosting, but chocolate is the best!

 

 

 

QUICK RICE PUDDING

1 tsp. vanilla flavouring

 

1 cup instant rice

 

1/4 tsp. salt

 

3 1/2 oz. pkg. instant vanilla pudding

 

1 cup raisins

9 minutes. Allow to set 2-3 minutes after removing from oven.

 

 

 

CREAMY RICE PUDDING

but try it both ways.

 

 

 

 

 

5 MIN TREACLE PUD (or jam – treacle surprise, as in jam not treacle)

6 oz sugar

 

6 oz butter

 

6oz S.R flour

 

2 eggs – medium

 

1 tsp vanilla essence

thickly off back of spoon

 

 

 

Cream sugar, butter add flour , add

Add small amount of milk if mixture far too

thick

 

 

 

Oil v slightly rice cooker up to halfway.

Por a generous amount of treacle or jam into base of rice cooker. Add cake

mixture on to top.

 

 

 

Cook on high 5-6 mins or until sides of

sponge are slightly coming away from sides of r cooker. Take closed lid off and

concave inner, put a plate over top of r cooker and invert. Pud should ‘flop’
