      I don’t have a recipe per se, I tend to cook just by throwing stuff together. White rice is so versatile, pretty much add a protein, a veggie and a sauce and you can make it stir fry style, casserole style or just all plopped in a bowl. One of my most favorite meals is rice and beans. I soften some onion and green pepper in some oil, add a large can (or homemade if available) tomato sauce, 2 cans (or cooked from dried) kidney beans and a generous amount of taco seasoning. I cook it slowly over low heat and serve over white rice, sounds boring but it’s really good. Tightwad gazette has a “create a casserole” recipe that goes like this:

      1 cup “main ingredient”
      1 cup second ingredient
      1-2 cups starchy ingredients
      1/4 cup “goodie”
      seasoning
      topping

      Main ingredient suggestions:
      Tuna, chicken, turkey, ham, seafood

      Second ingredient:
      celery, mushrooms, peas, chopped egg

      Starchy:
      potatoes, noodles rice

      Binder:
      cream sauce, sour cream, cream soup

      Goodie:
      pimiento, olive, nuts, water chestnuts

      Topping:
      potato chips, corn chips, bread crumbs

      Obviously this can be made as healthy or as junky as your used to cooking.
