Rice Cooker Spanish Rice w/Gelatin

Ingredients: Makes about 8 servings
2 cups Broth
4 TBS Beef gelatin
1 tsp Cream of tartar
1 tsp Salt
1 cup Salsa
4 scoops Rice (rice cooker scoop is about 3/4 of a cup of actual rice)
Water to 4 cup fill line
2 TBS Coconut oil or Butter

  1. Put broth in pot and sprinkle with powdered ingredients, so gelatin can soak up some liquid.
  2. When soaked, put rice and salsa into pot and stir.
  3. Fill to 4 cup line marked on pot with water (or add extra broth).  
  4. Add a plop of oil or butter.
  5. Cook.
  6. When rice is done, fluff and serve.

My 4 cup rice cooker allows for setting a timer to start cooking at a later time AND keeps the food warm for up to 14 hours. Very handy!

Foodie Wednesday


  1. Jenny, what is beef gelatin? I saw your post on the KFC and am checking out your blog, looks great.

  2. Gelatin is mostly protein(high in glycine), with a little calcium. It is made from the connective tissue and bones, collagen. Beef gelatin is made from cows vs a pig or a horse.
