I’ve made this so many times I’ve lost count. It’s easy, it’s cheap, it’s delicious. After soaking the rice –brown best soaked the longest, jasmine gives it a sweetness, white needs the least soak time and gives it a more classic chinese takeout flavor– I simply add a tbsp of corn oil into my medium sauce pot, pour in the rice/water, a 2 tsps of chicken boullion powder (I love Knorr’s as well as Lee Kum Kee’s powders), some chopped green onions and cook. When the rice is done, stir in your favorite frozen veggies. The heat and steam cooks them perfectly. And of course adding a scrambled egg always makes it extra tasty.
Food that is filling, big portions for a couple bucks. No wonder my broke behind makes this so often!
Super cheap and you can scrape the bottom of your cabinet on this one. For about two bucks (as I have a tiny and meek basil plant, but a plant all the same!) I made my own tasty version of Spaghetti-O’s.
Prune some Basil, cut leaves into strips.
Warm on the stove one can Campbell’s Tomato Soup w/fresh cracked pepper added
Grab some twirly pasta (or one of your own choosing)
Boil those twirly Q’s!
Drain pasta and fold with tomato sauce and cut strips of basil. Add a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and a little bit more basil on top.
Presto, super quick & beyond easy Better Than Spaghetti-O’s. Fresher and tastier than the original, plus you made it at home with less than a handful of ingredients and time!
