Wehani Rice with Garden Vegetables
Wehani rice, bred by the Lundberg family of Northern California, packs such a wallop of nutty flavor that it needs little embellishment. Top with whatever vegetables are in season. Experience will teach you when the rice is about 10 minutes from being done, so you can add the vegetables.Machine: Medium (6-cup) rice cooker; fuzzy logic or on/off Cycle: Regular/brown rice
- Place rice in fine-mesh strainer and rinse under cold water; drain well.
- Transfer rice to rice cooker bowl. Add water and food base if using; stir. Close lid and set on regular/brown rice cycle. About 10 minutes before rice cycle is completed, add vegetables on top of rice and continue cooking.
