1/2 package fake meat crumbles
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
15 oz can sweet corn
15 oz can small green peas
28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon diced garlic (I use the kind that comes in jars)
garlic powder (if you like lots of garlic)
2-2.5 cups Minute Rice
In a large pot, saute fake meat in olive oil, with diced garlic, salt, chili powder, and garlic powder.
Cook until meat is sizzling, but make sure not to burn.
Add tomatoes, corn, and peas (and the juice from all the cans...this is what the rice will cook in) to the meat and herbs.
Stir it all together, adding more seasonings (lots more chili powder, some garlic powder) and allowing everything to cook together for a few minutes.
Add Minute Rice to the pot and drop heat to low. Cover and allow it all to simmer until rice is done. It will take longer than 5 minutes like the rice box says, but just be patient until the rice is tender.
This makes a lot of food, and is filling and quite yummy. The chili powder doesn't make it spicy, it just gives it a bit of flavor...but if you're worried you could take it out (I don't like spicy foods but I loooooove this with lots of chili powder).
I'm so happy my friends taught me how to make this...its a staple in my diet!
