Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Red beans and rice

Red beans and rice by John Spottiswood

I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious! Normally, I serve this with a jerk marinated chicken or pork, but it also goes well with grilled fish, steak and many other treats. If you serve it with something that isn't spicy, try adding some of the spices…

Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

Mexican Rice

Mexican Rice by John Spottiswood

I was looking for an improved Mexican Rice recipe, so I adapted this one from the America's Test Kitchen cookbook. I used many of the same ingredients, but instead of baking it, which seemed like a waste of energy, I finished it in my rice cooker. The result was a very flavorful and wonderfully textured mexican rice. Browning the…

Creamy Homemade Rice Pudding, Pressure Cooker Style by Foodiewife

If you don't own a pressure cooker, you can still make this recipe on the stove top. You just have to cook this for an hour. With a pressure cooker, I can make this in 16 minutes! This is the creamiest and tastiest rice pudding I've ever had! The Arborio rice, is one of the reasons why. The starchiness of this rice adds to the creamy…

Easy Persian Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

Admittedly, this doesn't capture the crunch outside of the normal method of making persian rice. But if you are just looking for a fluffy and buttery rice to serve with a stew or tagine, this works wonderfully and is super easy.

Creole Rice Pudding

Creole Rice Pudding by Amos Miller

NEVER throw day-old rice away! Next time you have that extra-large Chinese take out and you have some of that white rice left over, you have the base of a fabulous rice pudding, New Orleans-style! This is NOT the junk you have to choose from for dessert ("jello, rice pudding, sherbet") after the regrettable meal at the greasy spoon…

If you are serving Italian, Indian, Mexican, U.S. midwestern, southern and southwestern cuisine, here is a change of pace for dinner. Vegetables and meat or without meat can be changed as to what…

Yellow Garlic Rice and Broccoli

Yellow Garlic Rice and Broccoli by Smokinhotchef

I make this all the time for a quick and easy side dish. Alternately, this can be a main dish by adding 1 lb. of chicken, beef, or pork. my daughter Genesis loves it and enjoys this recipe as her main dish with no meat added. I feel great knowing my children can be satisfied with a meatless meal and still be happy!
