In college I'd put couscous in simmering water, crack an egg on top and broccoli on top of that. I'd close the lid and let the whole thing steam cook. Not the most exciting dish, but it is fast, cheap and easy.
Hey, that sounds pretty good.
I assume you cook it however long it takes couscous to cook? Or do you put the egg and brocolli in during the last few minutes?
Ok, here's one from me.
I'd bought a frozen entree the other day, curried lentils and rice. I liked it but thought it was way too expensive, so made up my own.
Chop up a couple of onions and sauteed in olive or whatever oil you have. Set aside.
Bring 4 cups of water or any kind of broth to a boil, add a cup of lentils, 1/2 cup of brown rice, 2 or 3 tsp of curry power. Simmer for 35-40 minutes.
If you prefer white rice, just start boiling lentils for 20 minutes, then add white rice for last 15 or 20.
Add whatever other stuff you want, salt, pepper, herbs.
It made a big pot, so I put in little lunch size containers and froze.
Made a week or more worth of lunches for the cost of one of the frozen entrees. Also, it tasted, IMO better.
