10 other foods you can 厨师 in a rice 厨师er besides rice
完美的粥!

The rice 厨师er was poorly named.

为什么?

Well yes, it can 厨师 rice 厨师 rice rather well, so the name seems pretty accurate.

但…

It can also 厨师 非常 不止是米饭

When I succumbed to buying a rice 厨师er after many years of “为什么我需要其他电器?” 我用Google搜索的第一件事是 “what else can I 厨师 in a rice 厨师er?”

I was surprised that you could 厨师 just 关于 anything! People 厨师 whole roast chooks in the rice 厨师er, cakes, braised ribs, hard-boiled eggs.

谁知道?!

In this 文章, I share some foods you can 厨师 in a rice 厨师er other than rice. Most ideas I’ve tried, a couple I have put on our 进食计划 在接下来的几周内。

Also, at the bottom of the 文章, there is a quick reference guide for grain to water ratios for the rice 厨师er.

电饭煲的6大好处

Why bother with another appliance when a stovetop is sufficient? That’s what I wondered for many years. Then I fell in love with my rice 厨师er 和 use mine every week for all sorts of 厨师ing. Here 是 six benefits of using a rice 厨师er:

1.廉价的小空间炊具

Do you have a 小 kitchen or live in a college/dorm? Because a rice 厨师er can 厨师 more than just rice, it’s a option for 小 space 厨师ing.

2.旅行烹饪

Another way to use a rice 厨师er is for travel 厨师ing, especially if you’re road-tripping or you’re on a 机舱住宿。像这样的简单食谱 烤唐杜里鸡肉饭 表示您只需10点就可以在桌上吃晚餐– 15 minutes of hands-on work. More holiday. Less 厨师ing!

3.便利性

My rice always boils over when I 厨师 it on the stove. And if I 厨师 brown rice, I have to continually watch it because it either boils over or boils dry.

有了电饭锅,我可以走开,不用看它就可以做它的事情。当您在用餐的其他部分进行杂耍时,再加上需要家庭作业帮助的孩子,以及普通家庭在忙碌的夜晚中发生的所有其他事情,不必担心。

4.消耗比炉灶少的电

真相:您无法节省大量的电费,但这是在便利之上的额外好处。

How much electricity does a rice 厨师er really save?

My rice 厨师er uses 400 watts per hour on the 厨师 setting. The average 四燃烧器炉灶上的电燃烧器大约使用 每小时1,000瓦.

calculating the running costs of your rice 厨师er

为了进行成本比较,让’s assume it takes 20 minutes to 厨师 和 the cost of electricity is 28 cents per kilowatt-hour. Here’s how to work it out:

电饭锅: 400瓦x 0.3333(20分钟)/ 1000 = 0.133KWH x 0.28 = 3.73美分

炉灶台 1,000瓦x 0.3333 / 1000 = 0.333KWH x 0.28 = 9.3美分

每罐米饭可节省5.6美分。节省不了多少–如果您每周煮三锅米,每年大约$ 9–但除了方便之外,这是一个不错的奖励。以每年9美元的价格,将需要近三年的时间才能收回最初25美元的购买价格,如果您更频繁地使用它,价格会更低。

5.夏季热量少

在夏天,使用不会产生比火炉高的热量的小家电将使房屋内部的温度下降。这样可以减少对空调的需求,从而节省更多的钱。

6.释放炉灶空间

If you have a 小 stove or if you’re using a few burners at once, a rice 厨师er frees up a stovetop burner, leaving you with more room 和 less stress.

电饭锅基础知识–煮完美的米饭(白,棕和印度香米)

You don’t need a fancy rice 厨师er to 厨师 a variety of foods. A 贱 ($25 approx.) rice 厨师er that has a ‘cook’ 和 a ‘warm’ setting is sufficient. This is the rice 厨师er 我用.

Your rice 厨师er will come with directions. It’s best to refer the instructions specific to your rice 厨师er, but as a general guide:

白米:1杯大米对1杯水

白色长粒:1杯米饭至1.5杯水

糙米: 1杯米饭到3杯水

印度香米: 1杯米饭到2杯水。

米饭煮好后,电饭锅切换到“暖”设置,品尝米饭。如果您没有按照自己的喜好烹饪,请加一点水(¼–½杯),然后切换到‘cook’再次。记下下一次的理想比率。

您可以在电饭煲中烹饪的其他食物

A rice 厨师er isn’t a one-show pony. It’s more versatile than the name suggests. And the convenience transfers to the other foods you can 厨师 in a rice 厨师er.

注意:煮谷物时,在电饭锅底部通常有一个“皮”是正常的。有些人(像我一样!)喜欢这种硬皮饼,并为此奋斗。如果您不喜欢它,可以在炊具的底部涂抹一些油或黄油以防止结皮,或者在捞出食物时将其留在锅底。留下来浸泡,皮肤马上就会脱落– no scrubbing!

1.燕麦片

rice 厨师er oatmeal 厨师ed

Because you don’t have to watch the rice 厨师er, you can switch it on when you get up in the morning, have a shower or a cuppa 和 then come back to hot porridge!

The general ratio for 厨师ing rolled oats is 1 cup of oats to 2 cups of water.

I like to put the oats 和 water in the 厨师er the night before to let soak so that all I have to do is switch the rice 厨师er on in the morning.

You can substitute the water will milk if you prefer 和 add flavourings like cinnamon to the 厨师ing oats.

2.藜麦

Quinoa is super easy to 厨师 in the rice 厨师er 和 comes out perfect. Rinse your quinoa in a fine sieve before putting it in the rice 厨师er.

水比:1杯藜麦对2杯水。

3.其他谷物

厨师ing grains in the 厨师er.

我一直在吃麦肯齐’将Freekah,扁豆和豆类混合后,在最近的混合物中添加了更多的纤维。 CSIRO’s Healthy Gut book。您可以在超市(澳大利亚)以大约$ 4的价格购买谷物混合物,具体取决于商店。

The packet instructions for stovetop 是 1 cup of grain mix to 3 cups of water, but in the rice 厨师er, I prefer 1 cup of grain to 2.5 cups of water.

对于其他谷物,例如荞麦,比率为1杯谷物与2杯水。

4.玉米粥

polenta in the rice 厨师er

Polenta is messy 和 time consuming on the stove. Save the bother by 厨师ing it in the rice 厨师er. I don’t think I’ll ever 厨师 polenta any other way now that I’ve 厨师ed it in the rice 厨师er.

Ratio: 1/2 cup of polenta (not instant) to 2 cups of liquid (stock or water). Once the rice 厨师er clicks over to the ‘warm’ setting, stir in some parmesan cheese 和 a little cream for deliciously creamy polenta.

我用 这个食谱 有一些美味的俗气的玉米粥。

5.小扁豆

Should you soak lentils before 厨师ing?

如果您将它们浸泡,则可以更好地消化它们,但这不是必需的。让您的肚子成为您的向导。

The ratio for brown or green lentils in the rice 厨师er is 1 cup lentils to 3 cups water.

Red lentils go mushy when 厨师ed, which is great if you want a dhal. Add spices 和 vegetables for a delicious vegetarian meal.

寻找食谱吗?这里’s a great video recipe for rice 厨师er dhal (如果您想跳过所有聊天,则实际食谱从2:19标记开始)

6.炖苹果

stewed apples in the rice 厨师er

自白:我毁了一个炖苹果的锅。它们不是您可以忘记并留在炉子上的东西。

但是他们 something you can leave in the rice 厨师er 和 not worry 关于 while they stew.

以下是在电饭煲中炖苹果的方法:剥皮(如果您愿意)并剁碎苹果。将苹果,任何喜欢的调味料(如肉桂粉)放在电饭锅中,并加一点水盖住锅底,这样它们就不会燃烧(约1/4杯水)。煮至糊状为止。

If there is too much liquid, 厨师 for a further few minutes with the lid off to reduce the liquid.

7.清蒸蔬菜

Most rice 厨师ers, even the basic models, come with a steamer rack. Place vegetables on the rack over rice or other grains to steam while the grains 厨师. This saves you time, washing up 和 electricity!

I also like to stir some baby spinach through whatever grain I’m 厨师ing 和 let it wilt on the ‘warm’ setting.

8.超级简单的DIY Mac'n'奶酪

I haven’t tried making mac ‘n’ cheese in the rice 厨师er yet, but this super easy recipe from 在我的家庭餐桌周围 让我想尝试一下。

Update: I 厨师ed the mac ‘n’ cheese recipe 和 it turned out really well. However, I would avoid doing the second 厨师 和 just use the warm setting to melt the cheese.

9.果酱

你还有多余的水果吗?使用这个简单的食谱将其变成果酱 jam in the rice 厨师er.

10.甜点(不是布丁)

Why would you 厨师 a cake in a rice 厨师er?

Well, if you don’t have an oven, you’re travelling, or you want to reduce the heat at home but still have dessert, then you can 厨师 a pudding in a rice 厨师er.

烘焙的食谱使事情变得更好 焦糖酱香蕉布丁, entirely made in the rice 厨师er. Other ideas include chocolate fondant, hot chocolate, 芝士蛋糕 或水煮的水果。
