Easy Black Bean and Rice Recipe
This is such a great simple dish. It goes together quickly and is very filling. I serve it with a side salad for a weeknight dinner or with some grilled chicken or fish in the summer. We also often double the recipe, add a simple green salad and call it dinner. It’s quick, filling and cheap.
- 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes
- 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
- 1 tsp. oregano, dried
- 1 can (15 ounces) black beans, undrained
- 1 1/2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked
- Heat oil over medium high heat in a large saucepan. Add the onion and cook until tender. Now add the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Add the rice and mix well. Cover the saucepan with a lid, reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
Ready to cook some beans? Not only are beans a great way to add high quality nutrients to your family’s diet, but they are versatile too. You can easily adjust flavoring or start out with a big pot of pintos to have with corn bread the first night, then turn them refried beans for bean burritos the following night.
You can use them as a main dish by serving them over rice, with tuna or serve them as a side dish. Here are 35 savory bean recipes from simple frugal dinners to dishes you can make for company.
