Well, clearly I am failing at this blog thing. Maybe eventually I will post more. Right now? *shrug* Mean time, here is a recipe:
Really Good Beans and Rice, very pithy directions
Sauté some chopped vegetables (I had a few carrots from the CSA, some onion, a bit of celery) in some olive oil with a bit of salt until they are tender and just starting to turn golden. Add 2 cans (any kind) of beans (rinsed and drained)* along with some garlic powder, fresh ground pepper, and about a tablespoon or so of hot sauce. Shimmy the pan around and add a box of stock (chicken or beef if you are not doing the veg*n thing, vegetable if you are). Bring to a boil and then gently (GENTLY DAMN YOU) stir in 2 or 3 cups of left over (or pre-) cooked rice. Cover and simmer on low heat for about 20 minutes, until the flavors are combined. Eat.
It’s fucking delicious.
Huh, I just realized I probably could have cooked rice right in there if I didn’t already happen to have left over rice on hand. Well. I guess that’s something I could do in the future. Anyway, enjoy!
*Or you can use dried beans which you have already softened. I can’t seem to get the hang of that shit, so I use canned.
