Hi! Can this be made with reg­u­lar rice? I’m just won­der­ing since I have alot of bas­mati rice. Thanks for your input in advance.


If you want to add aspara­gus when would you do that?

I made this the oth­er night. Due to tim­ing it cooked longer than the two hours and sat a bit, so it was a lit­tle mushy but I am fine with that. I did stir it a few times as I just felt it need­ed it. Tonight I made risot­to cakes for din­ner with the left­overs, so good. Great use for any remain­ing amount. I may add more sun­dried toma­toes next time and cut them a bit small­er. This is a keep­er.


made this and felt the cook­ing time on high was way too long. i took it out of the crock pot and will heat it up when din­ner is ready. smells real­ly good. for me it would have been bet­ter on low.
