Pan toasted rice cooked with pre-seasoned Italian style tomatoes in a rice cooker. You can do this in the am and let it sit in your rice cooker - ready for dinner when you get home. Very tasty and simple. Keeps the rice moist, too.

  4. It doesn't need extra salt because of all the sodium in the canned tomatoes.
