I have much more sophisticated cookware, but I just keep coming back to my cheepy nesting camping pans (most often the smallest of them). In this example, I throw a portion size (about 1/4 cup) of Basmati rice into the bottom of the pan with a little cold (or room temp) water. I swish it around and dump the water, removing the excess starch. I add twice as much water as rice to the pan and place the steamer basket on top. Add whatever vegetables you want to steam to the basket. I often choose broccoli or snow peas with mushrooms. Place the lid on your pot, bring to a boil, and simmer for about 12 minutes. If you'd like to make a quick homemade glaze in the pan lid (takes only a few extra minutes) you can add teriyaki glaze to the meal (without need for refrigerating an opened bottle).
I make this quite often for breakfast. We don't have any rules as to what we can eat during a certain part of the day. Besides, how would we know when the standard "food rules" apply, since we don't ever know what time it is? ~grin~
Since I make it so often, I mix it up using many different combinations of spices and other ingredients. I always add a little olive oil to the rice.
Sometimes I have the vegetables on the side and use curry on my rice. Also, adding a little butter powder to the olive oil, then sprinkle real beacon bits over the top (hey, there's your breakfast food)!
Other times I opt for adding canned chicken to the teriyaki glaze... well, the possibilities are endless so I'll try to post a few pictures here as I make different combinations.
Each combination is delicious and it only takes one little pan. I can eat out of the small pan (or lid) and clean up is a breeze.
So you can see the ingredients, I'll dump it on a plate...
