I fell in love with rice cookers while we lived in Japan, when I realized how easy they made it to make a flavorful one-dish meal with a rice base. The DH got quite addicted to making traditional Japanese rice cooker recipes with veggies and plenty of sesame oil and gluten-free soy sauce for flavoring. When we moved back to the states I knew I had to have a rice cooker. We found one for a great price at our local Chinese market. Not much later I was poking around on Amazon and found a great cookbook full of nothing but rice cooker recipes- I ordered it, and the rest was history. We frequently make this Special Indian Rice Recipe and this French Butter Rice Recipe from the cookbook, and I feel like we’ve barely tapped the surface of this book. Just so you know- it’s not a vegetarian cookbook, and neither is it a gluten-free cookbook, but there are so many recipes that are either adaptable or naturally gluten free and vegetarian that it has been a great asset to my cookbook collection. The DH and I gobbled up this fresh dill rice recipe and I wanted to share it with you. Make it with some pan fried tofu or a bean or lentil recipe and some fast veggie recipe in your pressure cooker and you’ll have a fast and delicious full meal with very little effort!
