Long Bean Rice

A very delicious one dish meal that I can easily eat two big bowls. It can be cooked separately just dump everything in a rice cooker to cook. I prefer to cook separate, then add and mix well everything into the rice cooker. I find that everything turns watery and mushy if  cook all in a pot. It was so delicious, my children loves it as much as their mother, that is me. I hope you will like it too.
