Rice Cooker Curried Rice and Spinach

Submitted by: BIGBADBASIL

Introduction

I made this in my rice cooker yesterday: I set the timer and wandered away from it for a few hours. When I came home, the whole house smelled wonderful! Add a drizzle of good quality olive oil to finish it or wrap it in a tortilla for a very mobile lunch.

Serves 5 for dinner, more as a lunch box filler.

  • I thought this was great and quick. I didn't however use jalepeno or basmati rice. I used brown rice and Red Curry paste instead. It was awesome and my kids loved it too! - 11/11/09

  • This is terrific! It couldn't be easier and used ingredients I always have on hand. It makes 5 GENEROUS servings (closer to 2 cups), and best of all, it tastes wonderful. - 9/20/09
