BBQ Black Beans and Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by I Cook Therefore I

One of my favorite recipes from 1,001 Vegetarian Recipes. Also one of the first recipes I tried to cook when I first became a vegetarian. Sounds funny, tastes great! Even my carnivorous roommate from college loved this one.

very good and easy to make. I used frozen fire roasted corn, black rice and purple onion substitutes in the recipe cause that is what i had on hand and it was still fantastic. I am always looking for flexible sides dish recipes so i can change them up and make them more often without getting tired of them. Now that i know this basic recipe can hold it's own i may try something different next time such as red bell peppers and green onions ;)
