      I made this and I don't get it. It was mushy and has absolutely no flavor. I should get stars for having to eat this stuff.

      So good and good for you! For anyone who doesn't have a rice cooker... My Japanese mom gave me an alternate recipe. Soak 1/3 cup red beans overnight in ~2 c water, then boil them for 20 minutes. In a large measuring cup, mix some of the liquid from boiling with cool water, to make 1-3/4 cups liquid (about equal proportions). In a microwave-safe casserole dish, add the beans to 2 cups uncooked sweet rice, and then add the combined liquid. Let stand for 3 hours. Afterward, place a piece of wax paper over the dish and microwave on high for 3 minutes, stir, and microwave again. It may take 3 or 4 cycles to cook the rice (after the 2nd cycle, reduce the cooking time so that the rice doesn't dry out). Let stand for a few minutes before garnishing and serving.
