30 minute German rice dinner

This German rice dish, aka Reistopf, is so quick and easy to make.  It is similar to a recipe for risotto - but you use regular long grain white rice and add meat as well. 

In the photo above, I've added diced red pepper along with the canned tomatoes and mushrooms. Not necessary, but nice. Try adding some green and/or yellow peppers 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. Of course, this is just as delicious made without the meat and used as a side dish to a meat main dish.

If you end up with leftover rice, put it in a casserole dish, add a can of condensed mushroom soup, and about ½ 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 ½ hour or until hot. Another easy fast dinner recipe and different than today's.
