HOW TO STEAM BROCCOLI IN A RICE COOKER
Now, your rice cooker may not be the first kitchen appliance you think of when it comes to cooking broccoli – but we’re here to change all that!
You see, your Tiger multi-functional rice cooker comes with a tacook plate that allows you to cook a composed dish at the same time your rice is cooking to perfection in the inner pot below. It’s a real time saver!
Therefore, for this garlic and ginger broccoli recipe, just load your rinsed rice and water in the inner pot of your rice cooker – and your broccoli and garlic into the tacook plate. When you use the Synchro-Cooking setting, your rice and broccoli will both steam to perfection.
After cooking, just pour the sauce over your cooked broccoli florets and dinner is served!
