Rice cooker + steamer basket = moist leftovers


What do you do with rice leftovers?  Don’t reheat them in the microwave only to have dry, crunchy kernels.  Instead, use your rice cooker with a steamer basket and 1/4 cup water to quickly turn those leftovers back into moist, fluffy rice.  It only takes a few minutes and also works great for leftover fish.

Just remember, for safety’s sake you can only reheat once, so only steam as much as you’re going to eat in one sitting.  Also steam on a high temp. to assure you’re in the danger zone for as little time as possible.  For more on food safety and leftovers read this Mayo Clinic article.
