Two cups of white rice (washed three times), four cups of water, and one teaspoon of roasted chicken base.
I was happy with how it turned out but it didn't have as much chicken flavor as I expected.

So here's a new 2c grain in the rice cooker as a thought for PEA or PEX. I like the cook the same grain 4 different ways as a hey try this out you might find it is awesome! But on a homestead I see people using one way to reliably get dinner on the table so spice it up with you can cook more than rice in the rice maker. This is a mix of 9 grains ground like steel cut oats. I'd count this as"1"new grain. I have another mix that is 6 grains ground like rolled oats. While some of the seeds overlap the cooking time and water would be more like rolled oats so would count as 1 new grain as well. I live in Seattle so it's going to be a while before I can try solar anything. Also I will have to build a rocket stove before I can cook any dutch oven to put in a hay oven for the other bb.

I cooked quinoa in my Instant Pot tonight. I started with 1 cup of quinoa and toasted it for a minute on Saute before switching to the pressure cook function.

I wasn't sure how to prove that it was 2 cups of cooked grain IN the cooker. Here's a photo after removing it from the Instant Pot, some in a 1 cup measuring cup and more than that still piled next to it. Will that work?

I was meal prepping tonight, so this is my second technique of how to cook rice. I used 2 cups rice, 2 cups water, and a dash of olive oil.

At the BB20 event at WL, Trent cooked rice to share.  He started with just shy of 6 cups of dry rice in the rice cooker (which turned out to be too much for the cooker, but a good amount to share).  In the last photo, he's showing the amount of cooked rice still in the cooker and in a bowl for the rice that wouldn't fit in the cooker anymore.
