Rice did not come to pressure burned on the bottom had to take it out dump it into the strainer tray add a little bit of water and then re-cook it. Anybody else making this should probably brown rice then take it out and put it into the strainer tray clean your pan and then put it back in and then add this the rest of the stuff should work out.

Instead of blending the tomato, onion and garlic, I just used a can of crushed tomatoes plus enough water to make 2 cups. I added the garlic and onion during the sauté step. Also threw in a little crushed red pepper, cumin and oregano. It turned out great!

This had no reviews, but I thought I’d give it a chance because it was from “Team Mealthy.” Stupid idea. Giving one star because the recipe says you should end up with approximately 2 cups of the blended mixture, but we ended up with an entire pitcher full (6 to 7 cups), so we wasted several tomatoes and onions. I added seasoning from another recipe and the rice was pretty decent but I wouldn’t make it again and am going to find another recipe.

My mealthy doesn't come to pressure when I am cooking rice. Otherwise it's working fine. Don't know what to do
