I’m a big fan of meals that are simple, delish, and can be thrown together quickly, so when my friend showed me a video for this simple dish, I thought: why not, let’s give it a crack. This recipe uses ingredients that you probably already have on your cooking counter and will add some flavor to your bowl of rice accompanying your usual choice of protein.

 

 

Ingredients:

 

1 1/2 Cups White Rice

(you can try brown or mixed rice for a variation)

 

Water

 

2 tsp Olive Oil

(you can use fancy flavored ones as well ;>)

 

¾ tsp Salt

 

¼ tsp Pepper

 

1 Large Tomato

 

Your choice of protein or topping cooked as desired. I like avocado!

  1. Add rice to your rice cooker pot and wash as usual.

 

  1. Fill water to the proper line as indicated on the pot. For drier rice, subtract 6 Tbsp of water from the pot (to account for the liquid in the tomato).

 

  1. Mix in the salt, pepper, and olive oil. Swish to combine.

 

  1. Wash the tomato and cut off the stem and butt part.

Place in the middle of the rice, butt side up.

 

  1. Put the pot in the rice cooker. Close the rice cooker lid and set to cook normally.

 

  1. When the rice cooker has indicated that it is finished cooking, use the rice cooker paddle to mix the rice

 

  1. Serve with desired topping/protein.

 

 

Stay cool as summer rolls in!
