Yea I thought it did too .. :-) Can quinoa be used as a substitute for rice. I like rice, don't get me wrong, but it's empty calories.

It sure can. As a matter of fact, the first time I had it was when my mom used it in place of rice in her jambalaya. It has a different flavor and a much different texture than rice, but it will be very noticeable, but certainly not in a bad way.

Here's what mine looks like; Zojirushi .

Not a whole lot of frills, but it's small and does the job. It DOES have the porridge and sweet rice settings, but I still have yet to use them. I call it my Little Buddy!!

I finally picked up the quinoa .. DELICIOUS!!!! Now all I have to find is a place online that sells it cheaper than the health food store that sells it for $4 for 12 oz.

I've got to stop coming to this site. You people are costing me $$$$$! I just had to order the cookbook mentioned above, that brings my total to 12 books now. Plus a Zo rice cooker and Zo bread machine, all within the past several months. lol. I have used my rice cooker several times and love the thing, perfect rice every time and it doesn't leak all over the counter like my other one. My DH doesn't like rice so I just make it for myself and the kids if they are visiting. Last night I added some moroccan spices, fennel, bay and curry leaves and let it cook. I added peas at the table for some color and it was fantastic. I want to learn more recipes for the machine too so keep those ideas coming!

silentmeow, when you get the book try the recipe for Risotto Milanese. We made it a few weeks ago and it was amazing.

My birthday is coming up soon, and a rice cooker is on my list. GB - Are you still happy with what you got? Does it do a good job with regular ole long grain rice from the grocery store?

Thanks,
Tom
