And now, so I'm not totally off the subject of FF food: my own
Brain-Free Dinner (for those nights when I bring home no brain... :-)
1 bag frozen onion chunkies
1 bag frozen bell pepper strips (or chunkies, I can get either)
2 cans small red beans
2 cans black beans
1/2 Tbsp. cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground chipotle peppers (optional)
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (less if you're not into fire...)
OPen the bag of onion into a non-stick pot. Heat until translucent.
Add the pepper strips, heat until thawed. Drain and rinse all the
beans, add them in. Add about a cup of water, just so there are
some juices. Heat until hot. Once hot, add the cumin, chipotle and
cayenne (adjust the seasonings for your own tastebuds). Serve
over brown rice.
Voila! No chopping, nothing fancy, only one pot to wash (unless you
count the rice pot, in which case it's 2). This served three of us,
plus supplied 3 leftover containers for future lunches. Guess what's for
lunch today? :-)
Oh, I should probably mention that the bean cans are 15oz. cans. Dunno
how big the onion and pepper bags were...
