Easy veg pulao (pilaf)
This is a great one-pot meal that can be prepared very quickly without much effort, especially if you have frozen vegetables handy. Works great for the lunch box, even if kids do not have the option of re-heating their lunch before eating. Makes a lovely party pick too.

basmati rice - 1 cup
fat free milk - 1 cup
diced carrot - 1/3 cup
cut green beans - 1/4 cup
peas - 1/4 cup
grated cabbage - 1/4 cup
