ABC moms raising ABC kids
Who knew that you could cook anything other than rice in your rice cooker? I had no idea until just this year. My mother-in-law has tried to convince me to make dishes like Fish Head Soup and Whole Black Chicken Soup. I just stuck with just making rice in my rice cooker.
Until now. I have to credit my (non-asian) friend Miranda who turned me on to Weelicious’ Rice Cooker Mac and Cheese. She is my minimally-processed meals friend and inspiration! And then I found recipes like the one below and this Buzzfeed article that confirmed the same thing. This recipe is #2 on that list. It should be #1!
Original recipe says it serves 4-6, but in my family of skinny boys that number is still closer to 2-3. They love them some noodles and cheese.
Prep Time: 5 mins, Cook Time: 35 mins
2 cups pasta (I prefer macaroni, but you could also use rotini, faralle or bite size pasta)
1 1/2 cups chicken stock (regular, or low sodium stock, or vegetable stock all work well)
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese – 3 cheese blend of cheddar, mozzarella and monterey jack
What kinds of other things do you cook in your rice cooker?
