"Reinventing Indulgence" One meal at a time!

Rice and Beans

I am sure I have mentioned rice and beans before- who wouldn’t? It’s a staple dish across the world. 
I have to be honest though. I was trying to re-create a macro vegan brown rice tofu dish that I pay at least $6 for in the health food stores. Each and every time, I say: I CAN MAKE THIS MYSELF! lol However, I got carried away. I began making brown rice as usual doubling the water to rice ratio. Then I realized that I didn’t have any tofu in the house.. bad vegan I am lol. That’s when the bean idea came to mind and things began to get mushy. Mushy is ok, it’s just not what I intended.

I didn’t really mind much. I was getting my whole grains, some cooked veggies and my protein- beans!

Ingredients
Brown rice
Water
Chopped veggies 
Red kidney beans
Onions
Spices

I was lazy today and I admit it. I used frozen veggies and canned beans. I also didn’t even wait for the rice to cook all the way when I added the beans. You can count this as a quick and easy meal if you like. 
The best part is that I had enough rice and beans for several days of meals and I barely even spent $6 for the whole thing. 

One meal was just the rice, beans and fresh avocado. Another day is was an incredible rice and bean burrito with chard and hummus. 

Honestly, this was a delicious mistake!
