Now this is a great recipe for the recipe challenged! I love concoctions and this looks mighty tasty. I may have to get fancy and add some sauteed onions, but am definitely making this tonight. Thanks !

You're welcome. I hope you like it, I sure did. This particular recipe yielded about two servings. I ate both of them.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> I made that last night - was tempted to post my pic as well as the left overs are sitting in my work fridge.<br><br>
I just added a bit of vegetable stock to my brown rice and water while cooking.<br><br>
French stir fry and some roasted seeds.<br><br>
Stopped at the shop this morning and bought some chilly red kidney beans which I am going to add into my lunch portion as well as future cooking sessions.<br><br>
Great minds think a like <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

A brilliant vegan friend of mine suggested that I throw all of the ingredients into the rice cooker. It worked.

Cooking everything in the rice cooker does work. However, it doesn't taste nearly as good. Also, I've added some ingredients to the recipe.<br><br>
The recipe v2.0:<br><br>
1/2 Cup of brown rice<br>
1 1/2 Cups of water<br>
1 Rice cooker<br>
1 Tbsp Chili powder<br>
1 Tbsp Kosher salt<br>
1 Bag of frozen mixed vegetables<br>
1/2 yellow onion (diced)<br>
1 Tbsp Garlic powder<br>
1 Can of kidney beans<br>
3 Tbsp soy sauce<br>
1 Microwave<br>
1 Stove<br>
1 Cooking pan<br>
1 Wooden spoon<br>
1 Plate<br>
1 Fork<br><br>
Dump rice, water, chili powder, and salt into rice cooker.<br>
Close lid.<br>
Press button.<br>
Wait.<br>
Microwave frozen bag of mixed vegetables in microwave.<br>
Caramelize half of a yellow onion (diced) with garlic powder in cooking pan.<br>
Dump cooked rice, not-frozen-anymore bag of mixed vegetables and drained can of kidney beans into cooking pan.<br>
Splash some soy sauce over it.<br>
Heat and stir.<br>
Serve.<br><br>
What to drink with this?<br><br>

*goes off to kitchen* I was going to just make rice, but this sounds great, I have red beans in the fridge, and tons of frozen veggies! Thanks!<br><br>
EDIT: IT was quite good!

I usually make something like this, but I add a few things.<br>
I start with some Broccoli, mixed vegetables, water chestnut cut into slices, kidney beans, garlic, mushrooms and at the end I add raisins. The rest is the same with the rice and soy sauce.<br><br>
The combinations are endless, you can basically throw what ever you have at home into this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

That looks so good. I have a very quick dish that I make. I have organic brown rice that I throw in microwave for three minutes. I dump frozen veggies into a wok and then mix in the rice with Soyaki sauce. it's a fairly high calorie dish because I can't restrain myself and eat it all. I may try a new seasoning with curry powder and cayenne pepper.

I eat stuff like this a lot! Here's one of my favorite variations:<br><br>
1 cup rice (white or brown- brown is healthier but takes longer to cook) and 2 cups water<br><br>
2/3 cup white beans, such as Great Northern, cooked until tender without salt- I usually have a container of these in the refrigerator, and one or two other containers on hand in the freezer)<br><br>
1 tablespoon oil<br><br>
a heaping teaspoon of Herbes de Provence, or Italian-style herbs, or two cloves garlic<br><br>
A teaspoon of vegetable broth powder (optional)<br><br>
A cup or more of leafy vegetables: turnip greens, mustard greens, broccoli, spinach...<br><br>
1/3 cup canned tomatoes<br><br>
Bring rice and water to boil; add oil and herbs.<br><br>
5-10 minutes before rice will be done, add greens. Bring to boil again, turn off heat, and cover. Let sit until the heat has cooked the greens and water is absorbed (maybe 10 minutes).<br><br>
Add beans and canned tomatoes and chow down!<br><br>
EDITED TO ADD: I normally chop the greens and mince the garlic, but I suppose one wouldn't have to if they preferred them in larger pieces.
