recipe recovery: undercooked rice

i tested the limits of my rice cooker's capacity and ended up with seepage of liquid out of the top, which meant the rice would be less done than i would prefer.

so, to make this work in the most practical way, i braised these greens from shadowbrook in more lemon tarragon dressing and a cup of water. when the greens were almost done-- when the stems were close to having good bite-- i stirred in the rice, let the pan come back to a simmer, and then turned off the heat and let the rice absorb the liquid in the pan, which took about five minutes. it turned out to have a texture amazingly close to risotto. i might undercook my rice more often, just to finish it ths way again.
