One Dish Dinner - Gluten Free


I'll confess -- I enjoy baking much more than cooking, so if I can cook a meal with as little prep work as possible, I'm happy.
This recipe is written as gluten free, but you can substitute your favourite  pasta as you desire.
  • 2 tablespoons oil 
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 onion - chopped 
  • 4 cups boiling water 
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes -- gluten free 
  • 1- 14 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 - 14 ounce can kidney beans 
  • 1 - 14 ounce can corn 
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder - or one fresh crushed clove
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper as desired 
  • 1 cup Rice Vermicelli (a thin form of rice noodles) -  I use scissors to cut into pieces
  • 1 cup rice - I prefer converted or brown sprouted rice
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • shredded  cheddar cheese 
  1. Using large saucepan, brown ground beef and onion in oil 
  2. Add water in which bouillon cubes have been dissolved 
  3. Add tomatoes
  4. Add rest of ingredients and cook until rice is done, about 20-25 minutes. 
  5. Serve immediately with grated cheese topping.
  6. Can be frozen for a quick meal when needed - or desired.

  1. Julie, I want to try this soon. It sounds nice and easy and it reminds me of a rice stew my mom used to make. She called it Rice Giesso. It had finely chopped carrots in it, no corn or kidney beans, which I'd love to add.
