Are you sequestering your family and yourself from the flu? Well, here’s an easy, quick recipe from items in your survival pantry. Let us know what you think in the comments section!
2 Cups Rice, uncooked
4 Cups Chicken Stock for cooking Rice in. Made from base or bullion (canned stock works, too). Don’t worry, if you don’t have stock or bullion you can cook the rice in water; but stock is flavorful!
16 oz bag of Dried Beans, or 2 Cups of a mix of different types Dried Beans—whatever you have in your cabinet (I used a variety of lentils, northern beans, chickpeas)
One can Progresso Tomato Roasted Red Pepper Soup (Progresso is best for this recipe)
One can Progresso Hearty Tomato Soup
No Salt Necessary. Canned soups and stock have all you need here.
Night before cooking: Prepare Dried Beans by soaking overnight (see beans package instructions)
Place 2 Cups Dried Rice in 4 cups of Stock or water, bring to boil. Lower heat to simmer. Cover, let cook 20 minutes.
Set pot of cooked Rice aside.
Drain water from last night’s Beans. Discard water.
In a bigger pot, add Beans and the can of Tomato Roasted Pepper Soup. Stir
Bring to a boil and immediately lower heat to medium/low. Stir
Add Rice to the pot
Fold in well
Add the can of Hearty Tomato Soup
Stir in well to coat all the Rice and Beans completely
Lower heat to the lowest setting, cover pot, let simmer 20 minutes
Serve and enjoy!
