Artichoke Mixed Brown Rice
  Did you know that artichokes are one of the vegetables with the highest antioxidants? This recipe is a great way to recycle your leftover brown rice and turn it into a nutritious meal!

Ingredients (serves 4-6):

To Cook in the Rice Cooker:

  • 2 cups (rice measuring cup) short or medium grain brown rice
  • Water to fill to water level 2 for brown rice

To Prepare Separately:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 2 (14 oz.) canned artichoke hearts in water, drained and chopped
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh dill, chopped
1

Measure the rice accurately and place in the inner cooking pan. Rinse the rice once to remove any debris and drain. If using leftover rice, skip to step 3.

2

Add water by filling up to the water scale marked “2” for “Brown Rice”. Cook the rice using the “Brown Rice” setting. If your rice cooker does not have a brown rice setting, add 3 cups of water measured in the rice measuring cup.

3

When the rice cooker begins to count down to completion, heat a large frying pan over medium high, add olive oil and onion, and sauté until onion becomes soft, about 5 minutes.

4

Add artichokes and sauté for 3 more minutes.

 

5

Add cooked brown rice, salt, pepper, lemon zest and mix well until heated through.

6

Turn off the heat and mix in the dill.

Serve and enjoy for any meal of the day!
