For Korillian, who asked about lunch ideas for her daughter. These are
vegan, and Fat Free.

Cabbage on Tomato Sauce
1/2 cabbage, cleaned and chopped coarsly
3-5 roma tomaoes
about 1 cup of fat-free vegetarian tomato/basil
Put cabbage, tomatoes, and sauce into plastic
lunch container. DO NOT MIX!
Mix and nuke for 7 minutes for slightly crunchy
cabbage, 9 minutes or more for soft cabbage.

Quick Lunches (Curried Rice and Peas)
Pre-cook 1 cup of Basmati rice and put into plastic lunch box.
Add 1-2 cups of frozen peas.
Sprinkle generously with curry powder. I use about 2 teaspoons.
Salt if desired.
At work, stir, then nuke for 5 minutes.

This is a bit strange, but I liked it:
1/2 cabbage chopped coarsly
2 small potatoes
1 dozen or more mushrooms
2 T minced chives
Layer into lunch box in this order. Do not mix.
Mix at work and nuke for 10 minutes on high.
Option: I would think this would be good with
some caraway seed or Oregano added. I
could also imagine using 2 teaspoons of
sweet curry instead of the pepper and paprika.

Quick Lunch: Kidney Beans
1 can red kidney beans
1 can chopped tomatoes or equivalent amount of fresh tomatos
salt (only if using fresh tomatoes)
1/2 cup chopped parsley
8 Shitake mushrooms, sliced into thin strips
Load into microwaive container in layers following order of ingredients.
Mix before cooking. Nuke for 3 minutes at high or until hot.

Wild Rice and Sweet Potatoes
1 cup of cooked Wild Rice
1 cup of cooked Basmati Rice
I cook them together in the rice cooker with equal amounts
1-2 uncooked sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2 inch pieces.
1-2 T fresh chopped parsley
Salt to taste. (I put quite a bit for this dish.)
Fill into plastic lunch box. Mix for cooking. Nuke for 10 minutes
Note: This can also be made using a pre-cooked sweet potato. Then
the nuke time is reduced to 3 minutes for reheating.
Variation: I think this would be good with a couple of table spoons
of orange juice for extra flavoring added before cooking.
