Title: The San Francisco Treat
Post by: DrG on May 10, 2021, 08:21:57 pm
Not all food preparation involves a lot of skill and complexity.  Since I enjoy eating more than cooking or cleaning up, I have adopted several, “get in mah belly” dishes which hardly need a recipe at all.

The main ingredient in this dish is a commercial product popular in the US (maybe Canada also). It contains rice, vermicelli and a sauce packet.

First, you ‘fry’ up the rice and vermicelli.

Then you add water, the packet, and simmer. About 10-15 minutes before it is done, I add some ham.

Time to eat!

That rice goes to glucose almost instantly and the vermicelli can’t be too far behind. Plus, you get most of a days recommended intake of sodium in each box.

No lab bench should be without a box.
