Quick and easy lunch. That’s just what I need. So I combined this. Someone else somewhere probably did also and probably made it better, but for my purposes, it is great!
I make this ‘per serving’, but you can easily cook more rice and veggies to feed your family. And you carnivores can easily add a chicken breast on the side or shredded inside of the bowl to get your protein. Altho I pile mine up with lima beans, so I can ensure I get a lot!
I used white rice, but if you have brown or another kind of rice, use that! I used white because it’s quicker, and I was in a pinch for time. Whatever rice you use, whenever your timer is at 20 more minutes for the rice to cook, that’s when you start your lima beans and corn.
1 cup water to 1/2 cup rice. Prepare as directed on package. Note this is for white rice.
Half a can of sweet corn, drained, frozen lima beans (as many as you will eat!) Place them in a small saucepan, put some water in the bottom, and a dab of Earth Balance Vegan Butter (or regular butter) on them. Cover, and cook, 20 minutes or until beans are tender.
Top the rice with veggie mixture!
I paired this with a spinach salad today, and it was awesome! Usually when I make my ‘one serving’ portion, I have leftovers to share with Liam. He isn’t crazy about the lima beans (he says!!) but I just put other veggies on his (green beans and corn he does like).
I usually have to salt and pepper this afterward to taste. Enjoy!
