It can’t be glamorous every night and we don’t have the budget to go all out on every meal. A package of black beans from Cost Co and some veggies made tonight’s “Red Beans and Rice.” I got the inspiration from the link, but made some alterations.
- Instead of ham, I used leftover, frozen chicken from a slow cooked whole chicken.
- I used brown rice instead of white rice.
- I put one can of beans in the saucepan with juice
- I added chopped veggies (except the peppers, which I like crunchy – they go in at the end)
- I added 1 cup of water
- Pinch of terragon
- Douse of thyme
- Bit of poultry seasoning
- Dash of ground mustard
I boiled the above concoction for 30 minutes to match up with the brown rice.
Served with a salad and some rice milk to make a tasty, affordable treat!
