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 that's easy!
