Quick Vegan Dinner: Oil-Free Rice & Beans Hack
Many people come into my groups and programs without any confidence in the kitchen or cooking abilities. And if that's you, I want to start you off right here. And that's also you, if you've ever been derailed from your whole food plant-based lifestyle by convenience foods or by complicated recipes with many steps and ingredients. Keeping it simple is the best way to get started and keep going. So, to that end, here is my favorite easy rice & beans we make on busy nights with simple ingredients.
4 ingredients, some spices and 1 step cooking...now that's easy!
Vegan Cooking Level: Beginner
2 cans black beans
1/2 cup salsa, or more
1 cup vegetable broth, or more
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika OR chili powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
cooked rice, any kind you like or have
optional: half sweet potato, diced
optional: canned corn or corn on the cob
fixings: lettuces, tomatoes, onions, avocado
How to whip this up
Step 1: Pour both cans of beans, with their juices into a large saute pan. Add salsa, broth, spices and any optional corn or sweet potato and simmer for 15 minutes, until sweet potato is soft.
Step 2: Serve with prepared rice, corn on the cob and any fixings you have in the fridge!
