4 cups brown rice
A handful of spinach leaves (stem removed)
2 “roma” tomatoes (chopped)
3 Tbs cilantro (chopped)
2-3 chopped hot dogs (or some other weird meat– just not chicken or turkey)
Pho soup and/or beef bullion cubes
1/2 of an onion (sliced)
2 green onions (chopped)


* Fill up a pot with water (i.e. tons more than the rice– don’t worry, we’ll strain it later) and add your flavor cubes and a tiny bit of salt;
* When it boils, add: the rice, meat, onions, and tomato;
* Turn down the heat to a little below medium;

Let it boil for about 30 minutes, then add the whole spinach leaves.

Let it boil for about 15 more minutes (the rice should be tender).

Then strain out some of the water, leaving enough to keep it juicy. Turn off the heat. Add the cilantro. Cover and let sit until it cools.

Full of fiber and nutrients, easy on the stomach, and tasty to boot.
