Oh my gosh, I made this great discovery today! I discovered that I can cook lentils and rice all at the same time in the rice cooker!
I put in about 1/4 cup lentils with 3/4 cup rice or grain and the usual amount of water (2 cups),
and both the lentils and the rice came out perfectly.
I tried this twice, first with red lentils, and then with green lentils.
I think this is such a time saver! I wonder if there are any other fast-cooking items that I can cook with my rice?
