    Sounds great. Not sure about preheating the rice part. Are you using precooked/leftover - 10/23/19

    Yes, the rice needs to be pre-cooked, as the recipe does not account for the additional water dry rice would need. I do usually use left over cooked brown rice. Thanks for commenting. I made edits to the recipe to make it more clear.
