Black beans and brown rice (or quinoa).....<br><br><br><br>
I wing this every time so no real measurements....<br><br><br><br>
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:<br><br><br><br>
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!<br><br><br><br>
I always add salsa to mine once on the plate because I am a salsa freak....<br><br><br><br>
I am a marginal cook at best and haven't screwed this up yet...<br><br><br><br>
Enjoy! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/chef.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":chef:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/broccoli.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":bobo:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dancingbanana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":nana:"><br><br><br><br><b>Quinoa and Black Beans</b><br><br>

Ingredients (use vegan versions):<br><br>
2 cups water<br><br>
2 15 oz cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed<br><br>
1/2 red onion, sliced or diced<br><br>
1/2 cup diced squash-any (I've used delicata and butternut)<br><br>
1 tablespoons vegetable bullion (or swap 2 cup stock for water)<br><br>
2 tablespoons olive oil<br><br>
1-2 teaspoon Muchi Curry powder (hotter, or use reg Indian curry + some cayenne)<br><br>
cracked black pepper<br><br>
salt<br><br>
1 1/2 cups brown rice (I used brown basmati)<br><br><br><br>
Directions:<br><br><br><br>
Start water to boiling with bullion cube. Once boiling, add rice, reduce to simmer with a tight fitting lid.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
Eat.<br><br><br><br>

I make this when I'm feeling super lazy.<br><br><br><br>
Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens with Rice<br><br><br><br><br><br>
1 tbsp olive oil (you can use more or less)<br><br>
2 tbsp minced garlic<br><br>
1 15 oz can black eyed peas (not drained)<br><br>
1 15 oz can collard greens (not drained)<br><br>
1 bag of boil in bag instant brown rice<br><br>
bottled lemon juice to taste<br><br><br><br>
First start preparing rice as per the directions on the package.<br><br>
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)<br><br>
Fry until it just starts to brown.<br><br>
Next add the collard greens and black eyed peas to the frying pan.<br><br>
As soon as the rice is mostly done open the bag and add it to the frying pan.<br><br>
Cook until the liquid cooks out.<br><br>
Add lemon juice to taste and stir.
