Black Beans and Rice With Veggies

“This is a modification of a simpler recipe I found online - I used less beans and added celery, carrots, and tomatoes, plus a few other mods. I'm just posting it so I can get the nutritional values of this version, but if someone else wants to use it, enjoy!”

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots, and saute for 4-5 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the vegetable broth and spices. Bring to a boil, then cover, lower the heat, and cook for about 25-30 minutes until the rice is cooked, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. You may need to add stock (or water) if the rice isn't quite fully cooked; if so, add sparingly, 1/4 cup at a time.
  4. Add the black beans, stirring to mix. Cook for 1-2 minutes more, until the beans are hot, then serve.
  5. This would also be good if you add chopped red bell pepper to the veggie mix. For a garnish, Greek yogurt is a tasty (and much healthier) substitute for sour cream.
