Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 1 cup Arborio rice
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk.


  • Wash the rice in cold water until it runs clear.
  • Add to your SC with the chicken broth and cook on high until 3/4 of the liquid is absorbed.
  • At this stage add the zucchini and cook until all the water is absorbed , (approximate total cooking time 90mins in a 1.5L slow cooker)
  • Add the cheese and mix.
  • Once it's melted add the milk if you need to thin it out a bit to serve.
  • This recipe is excellent in the baby 1.5 cooker, as a side dish or double it and use a larger cooker as a main.

    I doubled the recipe cooked in my larger slow cooker. It is quite tasty, but needed to cook longer as the rice was still a bit grainy. Otherwise overall a nice dish. I had it as my main meal.
