These are pretty cheap, filling, and well balanced with veggies, protein, and healthy carbs. I used a gluten free brown/wild rice mix from Ludenburg that I love instead of white rice. If you are veg, you could fill these with a mixture of chopped veggies, or use fake ground beef. Also, I chose to bake these instead of cook them on the stove. 350 for 45 minutes did it nice. And,. they reheat well, making them great to make in a big batch and freeze or refrigerate. I plan on putting a couple in my lunch bento boxes for the next few days.
