We love this meal. It’s quick, easy, cheap & tastes great! We had this just the other night, so I thought I’d share with you. Just so you know, this is one of those meals I don’t have an actual recipe for, so you may need to adjust accordingly. Please also realize that right now we are cooking only for 2 of us and try to limit our leftovers to one additional meal. So, I’ll try to give you an idea of how to make this!
Black Beans & Yellow [but Brown] Rice
Prepare brown rice according to normal directions, however, add 1 packet of Sazon seasoning (or whatever you like to make yellow rice). An option is to add a bit more water to it along with some green peas (if you do, you’ll want to add a bit of EVOO).
Chop 1/2 a small onion & saute in medium sized pan with EVOO (you know…extra virgin olive oil). When onions are becoming transluscent, add 2 large cloves (chopped) garlic and a large chopped tomato; saute slightly. Add 1 can of black beans (typically, you don’t need to drain & rinse cans of black beans) and one can of water. Bring to boil then lower heat to simmer. While simmering, add (to your discretion) rice wine vinegar, red pepper flakes, Tobasco, and cooking sherry. Simmer for 5 minutes. Then serve on top of or next to rice!
