From time to time, I get into a food rut. That’s what I’m in right now. I feel hungry, yet have no idea what I’m in the mood for. I get tired of the same things over and over again. The other day an idea popped into my head, and yesterday I made it.
My new creation is very simple. The exact ingredients can be tailored to what you want. First I cooked white beans. I had the dry ones on hand. I had soaked them overnight, then yesterday I cooked them in the crockpot with some chicken bouillon broth. Once they were done, I mixed about 3 cups of cooked rice with them. And then I added a jar of mushrooms and a can of peas.
It’s very tasty, and I like it a lot. Though I must admit, it is somewhat bland. So just as you can change up the kind of beans (dry or canned) or the amounts of the other ingredients, feel free to season this dish how you want. I have had it for two meals so far. One time I put a little bit of honey mustard salad dressing on it, and the other time I used that red sauce from the Chinese restaurants. It’s sweet and sour sauce, I think.
So…experiment! While this meal won’t rock your world, it’s tasty and pretty easy to make. Also, it seems to freeze well…
