Teacher Savior: A Rice Cooker

Would you like a quick, healthy meal to keep up your energy for this crazy time of year?  Then check out how I use a rice cooker to make a quinoa, veggies, and rice bowl!



Rice Cooker meals, healthy home-cooked meals, 5 ingredients or less, meals in less than 30 minutes.



Sometimes we get so focused on finding ways to be productive at work that we forget to try to find ways to be productive at home as well.  You've heard it before, "You can't pour from an empty cup".  So, make yourself a healthy, filling meal that will be ready in no time!


Makes 1 serving

Ingredients:
1 cup Quinoa
1 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup Shrimp (I used frozen)
2 cups Normandy-Style Veggies (broccoli, squash, carrots, cauliflower)
1/2-1 tablespoon Butter or Ghee
McCormick Perfect Pinch seasoning to taste


Directions:

1.  Put quinoa and water in bottom of rice cooker.
2. Put steamer basket above quinoa and water mixture.  Add veggies and shrimp.
3.  Use the "quick cook" setting on your rice cooker.  This should be done in approximately 20                minutes.
4.  When the cooker is done, put 1/2-1 cup of the quinoa with the veggies and shrimp in a bowl and stir in the Perfect Pinch and Ghee.



Presto!  You have a healthy meal + leftover quinoa for another time!



Do you use a rice cooker to make your meals?  I'd love to hear how!
