Success with the Rice Cooker - recipe #11

My son - the vegetarian - loves rice. He asked for a rice cooker for Christmas this year. As he pointed out, it is something that he can take with him to college when he leaves in less than 2 years. My big worry about him going away to college is that he won't eat enough. Needless to say, there was a rice cooker under our Christmas tree!

Lately, I have been trying to have something hot in a crockpot for when Boy-o gets home from school. These include red beans with TVP, pasta or a tortilla casserole. This morning, I decided to try a vegetable curry rice dish that I found on the same site where I got the directions for roasting the peppers. I modified the recipe by making it in the rice cooker so it would stay on warm until he got home from school and also by leaving off the almonds. I didn't have any almonds on hand and I thought they would get limp in the cooker. It smelled heavenly as I was getting ready for work. Absolutely heavenly. Boy-o and hubby tried it and both really enjoyed it. They both commented that it could use more curry so I will definitely increase that the next time I make it.

Gosh, kitchen gadgets make cooking a lot more fun!
