Tasty Beans and Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

This was originally a Jane Brody recipe called Company Rice with Beans, but I've changed it so much over the years, that I'm claiming it as my very own! It's a great meatless main course and of course, very tasty! I add more or less of things too, depending on how the vegetables look when I'm shopping. Feel free to play with it!
