Black beans and brown rice (or quinoa).....



I wing this every time so no real measurements....



After cooking the black beans (I use dry, try to avoid canned stuff as much as possible) and rice (or quinoa) separately I do the following:



In good sized fry pan I put in some EVOO, heat on medium, add chopped onion, chopped bell pepper, cook that for a bit, add frozen corn, chopped tomato, spinach if I have some and sprinkle in a bit of cumin, turmeric and chili powders. Once this has all cooked for a few minutes (don't let it sit, keep stirring like you would stir-fry) I add the beans and rice or quinoa with a little more cumin, turmeric and chili and some fresh cilantro. Mix it all around about 2 minutes and it's done!



I always add salsa to mine once on the plate because I am a salsa freak....



I am a marginal cook at best and haven't screwed this up yet...



Enjoy!

I cooked a quinoa and black bean dish this week for the first time. It turned out great. I love quinoa. I have included the recipe below as well a rice and chick pea recipe. You could sub any type of bean for the chick peas if you wanted. There are so many recipes out there. I normally pull recipes from the internet at vegweb.com but there are other sites as well. Good luck with your veg cooking.



Quinoa and Black Beans

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon vegetable oil

1 onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

3/4 cup uncooked quinoa

1 1/2 cups vegetable broth

1 teaspoon ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

salt and pepper to taste

1 cup frozen corn kernels

2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and

drained

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro



Directions:

1. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the onion and garlic, and saute until lightly browned.

2. Mix quinoa into the saucepan and cover with vegetable broth. Season with cumin, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes,

3. Stir frozen corn into the saucepan, and continue to simmer about 5 minutes until heated through. Mix in the black beans and cilantro.

Roasted Chickpea Rice

Ingredients (use vegan versions):

2 cups water

2 15 oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1/2 red onion, sliced or diced

1/2 cup diced squash-any (I've used delicata and butternut)

1 tablespoons vegetable bullion (or swap 2 cup stock for water)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1-2 teaspoon Muchi Curry powder (hotter, or use reg Indian curry + some cayenne)

cracked black pepper

salt

1 1/2 cups brown rice (I used brown basmati)



Directions:



Start water to boiling with bullion cube. Once boiling, add rice, reduce to simmer with a tight fitting lid.



While the rice is working, start oven to 350 degrees. Put the chickpeas in a roasting pan or cookie sheet, add onions, squash, oil, curry and pepper. Stir until coated evenly. Toss in the oven for 30 minutes, stirring after 15.



By now the rice should be done, remove roasting veggies, stir in case they got stuck, add the rice, stir some more, and toss back in the oven for 5 minutes.



Eat.



Serves: 4-6



Preparation time: 20-30 min

I eat everything that nature voluntarily gives: fruits, vegetables, and the products of plants. But I ask you to spare me what animals are forced to surrender: meat, milk, and cheese. ~Author Unknown

I make this when I'm feeling super lazy.



Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens with Rice





1 tbsp olive oil (you can use more or less)

2 tbsp minced garlic

1 15 oz can black eyed peas (not drained)

1 15 oz can collard greens (not drained)

1 bag of boil in bag instant brown rice

bottled lemon juice to taste



First start preparing rice as per the directions on the package.

Then in a large frying heat the oil then add the garlic( I keep one of those giant jars of the minced in the fridge but you can use fresh)

Fry until it just starts to brown.

Next add the collard greens and black eyed peas to the frying pan.

As soon as the rice is mostly done open the bag and add it to the frying pan.

Cook until the liquid cooks out.

Add lemon juice to taste and stir.
