My Red Beans & Rice – meatless!

August 12, 2010

1 cup uncooked Brown Rice
1 can red beans
1 medium onion, chopped finely
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium green/yellow bell pepper, chopped
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. cumin
1/8 t. ground red pepper
1/8 t. black pepper
1/4 cup mango salsa, optional but recommended

Prepare brown rice.  (20 minutes of soaking, 35 more minutes of cooking)

Chop onion, garlic, and pepper, cook together.  Add spices after 7 minutes.  Add beans, heat through.  Reduce heat, add brown rice and mango salsa.

Use as a bed for Jerk Chicken.  We used Lawry’s Carribean Jerk 30 minute marinade and really liked it.  The mango added a nice sweetness that was a good escape from the heat.  We ate it with grilled bok choy, marinated for 15 minutes in a dash of soy sauce, and roasted garlic olive oil (about 1 or 2 cloves).  Yummy!  Kyle really liked it.
