    Canned beans make good healthy food.
    Kidney beans cooked with a curry paste or powder and tinned tomatoes. Add frozen spinach for colour and texture.

    Chickpeas cooked with onion garlic Ginger chilli and tinned tomatoes. Add potatoes to bulk it out. Green peas for colour.

    Chickpea patties with all the veggies that are halfway dead and boiled rice.

    Any dahls with spinach

    If you want your rice with all it's starch and filling nature make sure you don't wash it prior to cooking.

    Boiled rice and four bean mix was a fav of mine when younger. I just drowned it in tobasco.

    I have a risotto dish that I make when we get to the end of the week. I normally use chicken but easily use vegie stock and omit chook

    Aborio rice
    Pumpkin cubed or grated
    Chicken stock
    Teaspoon wholegrain mustard
    Squirt of honey
    White wine if handy but not necessary
    Sprinkle Parmesan
    I sometimes add spinach or sour cream for richness at the end

    It's yummy


    Bfp!!! Little bug due 25/6/12

    Baked rice

    Sweat and onion an garlic in a pan with some olive oil. When translucent, add cubed sweet potato, zucchini, mushroom (whatever veg you fancy really!) until slightly browned.
    Combine veggies and arborio rice in a large baking dish. Add a tin of tomato soup and vegetable stock - enough so that the liquid is about 2cms above the rice. Season well and add any herbs you like (I use dried oregano and thyme.)
    Bake for around 40mins at about 180 or until rice is tender. Stir occasionally, adding more stock if it seems too dry or starts to stick to the bottom.
    Serve with grated Parmesan. Its also nice if you stir in some baby spinach at the end.

    This is a Fave in our house.!

    Back in my uni days if we were really poor we would joke about how we would have to live on rice and sauce for the rest of the week!

    Really though I do a cheap veggie fried rice with mainly grated carrot and zucchini. It's yummy with a bit of chilli and soy sauce

    After reading this thread I made curried potatoes with brown rice for dinner and loved it! It takes practically no ingredients but is really tasty

    Biryani!!! I only know how to do it in a rice cooker - rice, biryani paste (can get a big jar from Indian spice shops), 2 bay leaves, 3 cloves, 3 cardamom pods, diced tomato, diced onion (browned). Whack it all in the rice cooker, add some water, stir & cook!

    Initial costs might be a little higher than you want but once you have the biryani paste, bay leaves, cloves & cardamom pods, you won't need to buy any for ages :-)

    Mmmmm Biryani! My mum makes several different types of that and I usually end up eating way too much of it at my folks place .
