 Add 1-2 cups of frozen peas.
 Sprinkle generously with curry powder. I use about 2 teaspoons.

lunch-pack-potato-cabbage recipe 

Date:    Tue, 13 Sep 94 14:34:38 PDT
 From:    vmh@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 This is a bit strange, but I liked it:
 Potato/Cabbage Box
 1/2 cabbage chopped coarsly
 2 small potatoes
 1 dozen or more mushrooms
 2 T minced chives
 black pepper
 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.

lunch-pack-wild-rice recipe 

Date:    Fri, 16 Sep 94 13:50:04 PDT
 From:    vmh@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
 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
 of water.
 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
 on high.
 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.
