Brain-dead food: curry rice and spinach

Yield: 2 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Box Near East Curry Rice
1 \N Box frozen spinach
1 can Black beans
1 can Diced tomatoes (slightly
\N \N Drained)

I might have posted this before, but one of my favorite brain-dead foods (outside of spaghetti), is to take one box of Near-East Curry Rice and cook according to directions, without the added fat. While that is cooking, microwave 1 frozen block of spinach (for some reason fresh spinach doesn't taste as good to me in this recipe -- and takes longer unless already de-stemmed and washed). When that is done, drain and set aside. Nuke 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed, and 1 can of diced tomatoes (minus some of the juice), mixed together (generally for about 3 minutes).

When rice is done, mix spinach, rice, beans and tomatoes (generally in a large bowl). Snarf. Not only does it taste good, but it's really colorful with the yellow rice, black beans, red tomatoes and green spinach.

Very satisfying. Even my almost-3-yr-old loves it.

Approximate total time: 25-30 minutes (time to cook rice) Source: apparent original
