Recipe of the Week: Hodgepodge Skillet

In a large pot or skillet stir in one food from each of the following four groups:
1. One cup of raw whole grain (rice, millet, etc) or pasta
2. A can of soup (cream of potato, mushroom, tomato soup) mixed with 1.5 cans milk or water
3. 1/2 cup cooked beans or eggs (I used a can of black beans)
4. 2 cups cooked or raw veggies

Bring to a boil and reduce heat to low, cover pan and simmer 30-45 min until grains are done. Stir occasionally. Optionally add 1/2 to 1 cup of cheese or tofu.

You can also sprinkle in some spices like garlic, oregano and cumin.

I make Shrade sized portions for the freezer. Freeze, pop out and put in a bag. Take out the night before and thaw in the fridge. Easy!

Some of the best casseroles are hodge podge. Then when you go to recreate them, you can't ever remember exactly what you did! LOL

I have an award for you on my blog. :-)
