DIRECTIONS

  • In a large saucepan over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots, and saute for 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the rice and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the vegetable broth and spices. Bring to a boil, then cover, lower the heat, and cook for about 25-30 minutes until the rice is cooked, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. You may need to add stock (or water) if the rice isn't quite fully cooked; if so, add sparingly, 1/4 cup at a time.
  • Add the black beans, stirring to mix. Cook for 1-2 minutes more, until the beans are hot, then serve.
  • This would also be good if you add chopped red bell pepper to the veggie mix. For a garnish, Greek yogurt is a tasty (and much healthier) substitute for sour cream.
