This German rice dish ("Reistopf") is so quick and easy to make. It is similar to a recipe for risotto - but you use regular long grain white rice. In the photo, I've added diced red pepper along with the canned tomatoes and mushrooms. Not necessary, but nice. (Try adding some green and/or yellow pepper as well.
You can serve the rice with any vegetable - the dinner above is served with squash - just cook some frozen veggies if you're in a hurry.
If you end up with leftover rice, put it in a casserole dish, add a can of condensed mushroom soup, and about 1/2 can of milk. Add some vegetables if you have any. Stir. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cover and refrigerate.
Tomorrow, looking for some quick recipes for supper? Just take from fridge, bake it uncovered at 350° F for about 1/2 hour or until hot. Another easy fast dinner recipe and different than today's.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
