Black Beans & Rice
Rice and beans never tasted so good! Easy & tasty, this scrumptious side has a kick. If you want dinner to go southwestern, try this decadent dish. It goes great with any protein or it can stand solo.
1 tbsp olive oil
Sauté in the olive oil the chopped onion.
Add garlic, black pepper, dash cayenne, carrot, the chopped tomato, and cook for 3 minutes.
Add and mix well the rice, add the water, reduce the heat to low, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender and the liquid absorbed. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.
Meanwhile, put the black beans in another saucepan with a little water and cook over a low heat, stirring from time to time, until heated through.
Once the rice is cooked, add the drained black beans.
