DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the rice according to the package directions. (I allowed 50 minutes of cooking time, which allows plenty of time to do the advance preparation of the vegetables.).
  • Meanwhile, coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and warm over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until tender.
  • Stir in the beans, tomato sauce, bell peppers (or capsicum), oregano, thyme, and hot pepper sauce.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes, or until the flavors are blended.
  • Serve the beans over the rice.
  • Garnish with the chopped chives or scallions.
