Your Rice Cooker comes with a 6-ounce (12 table-
spoons or 3/4 of a standard 1-cup measure)
measuring cup. All recipes in this Instruction &
Recipe Book are written using the rice/grain/cereal
measured with the Rice Cooker measuring cup.
The liquid is measured with a traditional liquid
measure (1 cup = 8 ounces = 16 tablespoons).
Only white rices can be cooked to the maximum
amount possible in the Rice Cooker (4 Rice Cooker
cups/8 Rice Cooker cups). Do not cook more than
the suggested amounts of other rices on the cook-
ing chart, as the amount of liquid needed to cook
larger amounts will boil over.
Note: For all recipes, use the included Rice Cooker
Measure Cup to measure the rice or grain. Use a
standard liquid measure cup to measure all liquids.
(This keeps your Rice Cooker Measure Cup dry for
measuring dry rice/grain.)
The Rice Cooker Measure Cup = 3/4 cup standard
dry measure or 12 tablespoons.

Wild Pecan
Waldorf Salad

Aromatic Rice is of type of long-grain
rice. The nutty aroma and flavor are natural to the
rice. We use the Wild Pecan

a Waldorf type salad with apples and dried cranber-
ries. This naturally flavored rice makes a great
side dish.

2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

Spread on a baking sheet to cool.
While rice is cooking and cooling, prepare the
vinaigrette. Place the shallot, mustard, salt, pepper
and vinegar in a small bowl; stir with a whisk to
blend. Add the oils and whisk until emulsified;
When rice is cooled to room temperature, place
in a large bowl. Add the diced apple, dried cranber-
ries, chopped pecans, red onion, and celery; stir
gently to combine. Pour the dressing over the salad
and toss gently to coat and blend. Serve at room
temperature. If not serving immediately, cover and
refrigerate. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes
before serving.
