No Fuss Rice-Cooker Stew Recipe

No Fuss Rice-Cooker Stew Recipe[yields]

You don’t need a whole kitchen to cook. Here’s a complete meal you can make with just a rice cooker. This is perfect for cooking in a hotel room, dorm room, or where ever you have electricity but no other cooking facilities. It’s good at home, too, for those days when you want a fast, no-fuss meal.

By changing the types of beans and flavoring of the tomatoes, you can use the same recipe to make a wide variety of meals. Try kidney beans with chili-style tomatoes, chick peas with basil, garlic, and oregano, black beans with garlic and onions, and pinto beans with jalapenos.

Active time: 12 minutes. Total time: about 40 minutes, depending on your rice cooker. Makes 4 servings, 1 cup each.

    Where is the recipe for the bean and vegetable stew???????

    • Hi Grace,

      Sadly, our recipe section was recently hacked. I know, crazy, right?

      We’re working behind the scenes to make sure it’s fixed before we open them back up to the public. Please be patient with us.
