Easy is an understatement, and this is delicious, made again on 21 Mar 22022, and been making this since 2018 and the family loves it!. A nice change from plain white rice for a side. I make this as written in my small 1 liter (1 quart) rice cooker as well. As a variant, you can use a can of whole tomatoes with juice, just chop the tomatoes up.
