Quick-n-Easy Sweet-n-Yummy Cranberry Apple Rice Recipe

This one’s a quickie. Why? RICE COOKER, that’s why!

That’s right, one of my most treasured kitchen tools is my handy dandy rice cooker. I mean really, how can anyone not love “press the button” cooking?

With the rice cooker it’s so easy to mix different yummy flavors in with your rice.

Feel like some Indian flavors? Add some curry, raisins and light coconut milk to the rice cooker.

Want some Spanish style rice? Throw in some crushed tomatoes, onions and cilantro.

This day I was having a little sweet tooth attack, so I decided to go for something sweet and yummy. 


Sweet-n-Yummy Cranberry Apple Rice Ingredients



  • 2 cups rice
  • 2 cups vegan vegetable broth
  • 1 or 2 handfuls of dried cranberries, sweetened or unsweetened depending on your mood
  • Chopped onions – how much? Depends on how much you like onions! I used about a quarter of an average sized red onion
  • Chopped apple – I used about a half an apple – as I said, I was having a sweet tooth attack 🙂
  • Diced garlic cloves – I looooove garlic, so I used about 6 cloves
  • Couple of spoons of vegan margarine

Why eat healthy foods? Why, to concentrate and feel better while we work, of course!
