Bring the water to a boil. While itís getting hot, stir in the onion flakes, garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Add the Minute Rice, stir in, cover and remove from the heat.
When the rice has absorbed the liquid, stir in the beans with their liquid and half of the can of collard greens with some of their liquid. Add the baked ham pieces and stir in. Bring up to heat so youíll have a good, warm meal.
Use a microwave safe bowl to heat up the can of condensed cream of mushroom soup to which youíve added one-half a soup can of water. This makes a good, quick gravy to slather on each serving.
Itís nothing fancy, but itís a good, quick and easy meal.
