Shane’s Bean Soup


  • 12-16 oz ham (or 1 lb beef)
  • 4 cups beans
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1/5 cup dried onions
  • 1 Tbsp pepper
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1-2 quarts tomatoes (or ½ cups tomato powder)

Combine and simmer until for about 30 minutes until done. (If using dry beans cook them until soft before adding the remaining ingredients.

If using hamburger, brown it first and you may wish to substitute chili powder for salt and pepper.

You can add 3 cups macaroni (or any pasta) and enough water (about 3 cups) to re-hydrate it. Add pasta toward the end of the cooking process. It usually takes only 10-15 minutes to cook pasta. Adding pasta will make the dish serve more people. If adding pasta, you may want to add additional seasonings.

Shane’s Whole Grain Cereal

This one is easy, tasty and healthy.

  • 1 ½ cup brown rice
  • 1/2-1 cup raisins
  • ½ cup oat groats
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 2 Tbsp butter (optional)
  • 4 ½ cups water
  • ½ tsp salt

Cover and simmer until water is mostly gone.


Use 1 cup white rice and ½ cup brown rice

Substitute other dried fruit in place of the raisins

Add other seasonings to taste (cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla)

You can use apple juice (or other juice) instead of water (with or without the dried fruit)

If you don’t use dried fruits reduce the water by ½ – 1 cup.

You can use virtually any whole grain or any combination thereof (wheat, rice, oats, millet, etc).

It’s 3 cups of liquid to 1 cup whole grain (except rice, which is 1 ½ to 1 ratio).

White rice also takes ½ the cooking time so if using multiple grains you can add it to the mix about half-way through the cooking process.
