YOUR RICE COOKER IS THE PERFECT APPLIANCE FOR MAKING SOUP AND STEW
What is it they say about a watched pot never boiling?
While that may be a bit of cooking folklore, we firmly believe that there are certain kitchen tasks that can be made a lot easier if an appliance is taking care of the actual cooking.
Whether you’re making a savory white bean and ham soup – or this hearty vegetable stew – when you use a rice cooker, you never have to worry about whether your soup is ready or not. Heck, you never even have to turn the stove top burners on (a great relief in the summertime!).
Well, the same rules apply to this luxuriously creamy potato potage.
WHAT IS POTAGE?
A potage (or pottage) is a thick stew or soup made typically of boiled vegetables – and sometimes grains and meat or fish.
One of the most iconic examples of a potage is a French potato leek soup, blended until silky smooth.
This rice cooker potato potage is an homage to that rustic yet refined French classic.
HOW TO MAKE POTATO POTAGE IN A RICE COOKER
Simply load all of your potage ingredients into the inner pot of your Tiger multifunctional rice cooker and stir well. Be sure to check the ingredients tab on this page for options when it comes to the stock and non-dairy alternatives if you’re looking to make a vegan potage.
Close the lid, select the Slow Cook setting for 60 minutes and press the Start button.
When the cooking cycle has finished, simply transfer the cooked soup to a blender (or use a hand blender) and blend until silky smooth.
Serve with a pinch of salt and pepper to taste – and your favorite local bakery’s crusty baguette. Bon appetit!
