Cooked rice for a supper of cashew chicken. The instant pot had a slow cook setting so I used it and discovered that I need to figure it out better. But the rice got cooked and that is what mattered, it just took much longer.

I cooked up some quinoa for lunch in my rice cooker. I use it for the base of salads (my favourite is black beans, sweet potatoes, home made salad dressing).

Made broth from veg scraps and shrimp shells I save in the freezer for broth in the crockpot, then strained the broth and made the rice with it. The broth measured just over 2 cups, so I used a cup of rice. That's the spoon I made in the carve a spoon roundwood BB :)

Here is my submission for "Cook Grain with a slow cooker - PEP BB food.sand.grain.rice":

I am providing photos of the following:
  - a picture of the uncooked grain in your cooker
  - a picture of your cooked grain in your cooker (clearly at least 2 cups of cooked grain)

I used an Aroma brand "Simply Stainless" 10 cup rice cooker, with 2 cups (2 and 2/3 rice cooker cups) of quinoa and 4 cups of water (nothing else added). The quinoa was small enough to bubble into and clog the little steam hole at the top, so the cooker became a little messy around the edges, but other than that the grain cooked well.

Here's my submission for this badge bit. I hate to say it, but the rice came out quite sticky using this method. I vastly prefer the stovetop. Always good to try new things, though. Here are:

  - a picture of the uncooked white rice in my Instant Pot (you can see a bit of butter floating around too)
  - a picture of my cooked rice in my Instant Pot

I started with 2 cups uncooked rice, so it was more than 4 cups cooked.

Thanks!

"Note: same pics as incomplete post above"

What is incomplete about the post? The post above it was edited to include the picture with the measuring cup after the post was originally flagged as incomplete because the evaluator said they were unable to judge the quantity.

I resubmitted because there was no response to my edited post for days and I figured the edited submission just wasn't going to be noticed.
