Add 1/4 cup cool water to the cornstarch bag and dissolve (seal and shake the bag carefully). Set aside. Add 1 3/4 cups water to your pot with the dry ingredients.

Notes
This is a ‘FBC – Hybrid’ style meal where you make the carb using the FBC method, then prepare the sauce in your pot. If you prefer you can use a second pot to make the rice.[br]We did a recipe re-do of this recipe – for another version check it out:[br]http://blog.trailcooking.com/2012/07/31/recipe-re-do-cheezy-rice-and-veg…
