Beans And Rice

            Beans and Rice

Very often you will find a recipe for this combination.  In this version it follows the dietary guidelines I spoke about yesterday.  However you can add any kind of meat you wish.  I often make this and then use it a filling for Vegan Burrito. 


1/2 white onion      
1.2 green peppers
2 – Stocks of celery
1 – 2 cloves of garlic

Rough chop all of the above and put in a food processor.  Pulse until they are a fine dice but not a puree.  Place all of the mixture in a cold nonstick skillet and then turn on the heat to medium.  You do not have to use any oil – the moisture from the vegetables and the nonstick skillet will keep them from sticking.  Cook until the mixture is translucent and slightly brown. 

Add
1 can of diced tomatoes – including the liquid
1 can of black or red beans – drained and rinsed
1 package of taco seasoning OR add your own blend

Cook for 5 – 10 minutes.  Taste and adjust the salt

Combine with cooked rice for a filling or set on the table with cooked rice.

Meat variations

Once the vegetables are cooked add your favorite meat and then add your seasoning.  Cook for 5 minutes before you add the tomatoes and the beans.
