Umm, "one package Uncle Ben's Ready Rice?" What? How much rice is that in the REAL world? So sorry you are not encouraging real cooking. Preparing real brown rice takes NO more effort. Put it on for 45 minutes and forget about it. Canned beans? What is this? C'mom SparkPeople! - 2/20/13
In the past couple of weeks there have been more "recipes" featuring packaged products full of chemicals and preservatives than there have been actual recipes--so why doesn't Spark People call them something else like Ad Sponsored Dishes--kinda sad--glad I have all the old recipes. - 2/20/13
