    Excellent! I added the following private note to my saved copy:<br/><br/>1) Sautee 1 chopped onion and several cloves of minced garlic with spices before adding beans and tomatoes<br><br/>2) Double the rice and beans<br><br/>3) Triple spices and salt to taste<br><br/>4) Add 1/2 tsp of cayenne<br><br/>5) Reduce honey<br><br/>6) Add kale or other greens during the 10-minute simmer<br><br/>7) Dissolve 1/2 vegan bouillon cube AND a tsp of arrowroot in 1/2 C hot water and add it to the pot with the greens<br>

    I liked this, but I felt it needed something...not sure what. I used red beans instead of kidney - not sure if that was it or not. But, the husband liked them and my vegan daughter will like them, I am sure. I also started, as another reviewer did, with sauteed onion before adding the rest of the ingredients. I did not feel that this needed cornstarch, so I eliminated that step. Also did not use honey but used about a teaspoon of agave nectar.

    I sauteed 1/3 c. of chopped onion with 1/8 tsp. garlic powder before adding the other ingredients. I used one very large diced tomato instead of a can of tomatoes & I used only 1 tsp. of honey as I'm not a huge fan of it. This was so quick & easy to make & tasted great with the brown rice I made. Definitely a busy weeknight meal that will make a reappearance on my dinner table.

    Delicious and so easy! Didn't have allspice, so I subbed 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon, and a few shakes of ground cloves and ground ginger. Served over brown rice. Next time I'll add sauteed onion and maybe minced garlic as other reviewers have suggested.
