Here is a Rice Cooker Quinoa Casserole! Kind of. It’s adapted from a dish my brother makes often for himself.
I found quinoa (キヌア) at my local grocery store! It’s a small package and somewhat pricey, but the other ingredients are not so expensive, so it works out well.
Quinoa can be cooked in a rice cooker on normal “white rice” settings. For each 1 part of quinoa, you need to add 2 parts water. This package is 150g, (about 1 cup in American measurements) so I added 2 cups of water. The end result is what you see above (though blurry) in the rice cooker. It’s fluffy!
In a separate glass dish, I put half a chopped onion, 2 chopped tomatoes, and most of one chopped red bell pepper, one yellow bell pepper (パプリカ), and a few small green peppers (ピーマン). Added to that about half of a container of salsa (it was half because I ate the other half for breakfast…DON’T JUDGE ME! XD).
I mixed the quinoa with the vegetable/salsa mixture. After that, I cut a lime in half and, using one half, squeezed lime juice over the top to add more moisture and some more flavor.
After that, I put the casserole dish in my microwave oven on the oven setting at 180 degrees Celsius (about 350 degrees Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes.
The last picture on the right is the final product!
