Black Beans & Rice

So good I can't believe I didn't make them before today. This is our new favorite....

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 - 1.5 cups vegetable broth (or chicken if you're not worried about keeping it veg)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin (or more if you like spicy)
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (or more)
  • 1.5 cups canned black beans, drained

In a stockpot over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Add the onion & garlic & saute for 3-4 minutes. Add the rice and saute another couple minutes.

Add the broth, bring to a boil, cover and lower the heat. Cook for 20 minutes.

Add spices and beans. Stir.

Cover and keep over low heat until ready to serve.
