Per request, I am posting the recipe that I mentioned in yesterday's post.
Hey! Give me a break! It's a small plate! Alright, yes, I did pile it on that time... but I was hungry and knew it would be so tasty!
Our son taught us this quick and easy dinner idea one night when he was at our house and needed something to eat. I guess I'll just call it Easy Vegan Meal. Quantities are up to you, but I'll put down what I usually use.
Easy Vegan Meal
from son of Giraffe
rice, 1 cup raw
1/2 onion, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 to 1 jar of salsa (eyeball this.. for the amount of liquid you want/need)
1 can of black beans, rinsed
spices to your taste
Cook rice following directions on box. While rice cooks, saute onion and green pepper in olive oil. When onion is clear, add salsa and black beans. Add spices you may enjoy (cumin? chili pepper? use what you like; experiment.)
Stir and simmer 'til rice is ready.
Serve with the rice.
If you are missing something like a green pepper, you can improvise. I've had to fill in with various things a few times, and it's always been good. (Don't tell, but once I even added browned ground beef!)
