Roast Vegetables in a Rice Cooker

I did not realise how useful a rice cooker can be until I researched on the internet. All kind of things can be cooked in a rice cooker from risotto to bubble and squeak, steamed vegetables and meats.

Roast vegetables are very delicous done in the rice cooker, and I have included a simple recipe.

Ingredients:
Vegetables: your choice from potatoes, carrots, onions, pumpkin, parsnip or others
Oil
Garlic
Herbs
Fish Sauce
Pepper

Method:
Heat the oil in the cooker on high. Add the garlic and saute until soft, then add other vegatbles and toss.

Place lid on cooker and leave for 1/2 hour, then stir. Stir again after another 1/2 hour. Test for doneness after another 1/2 hour.

When vegetables are done, turn cooker back to cook setting and add fish sauce, herbs and pepper, stir fry until golden and delicious.

Do not worry about the fish sauce making the vegetables taste fishy, it will not. It is a lighter alternative to soy, adding both flavour and a little salt.
