About this recipe: Brown rice, black beans, tomatoes, a bit of onion and oil and in about 15 minutes you have a delicious vegetarian meal that's also nutritious.
Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried. Or if you'd like to stick with tinned, virtually any bean - kidney, haricot, borlotti - would work well in this recipe!
Something else. My whole family enjoyed this dish. I especially love the fact that it's so healthful. I sauteed fresh minced garlic with the onions, rinsed and drained the beans and added a little chilli powder. We added a little shredded cheddar and ate it wrapped in tortillas. Yum! - 24 Jul 2008
Something else. Good tasting and healthy. Made regular rice seperately in my rice cooker and topped it with the bean mixture. Overall this was a good recipe. - 24 Jul 2008
I would definitely cook the rice separately. My rice was a little gummy and I had to add lots more water. Even still it tastes pretty good! I'll try this again soon, following my own advice of course. - 24 Jul 2008
