Easy and awesome! I have never used my rice cooker in such a manner, and it really makes it versatile. Thank you for the inspiration!

This is a great recipe, thank you! It's so easy to make and I love that it's all made in the rice cooker. I made ahead of time and then just left it in the cooker on Keep Warm until I needed it. :)
