Quick & Dirty Vegan Black Beans And Rice
Hey foxes! I don’t know about you, but the simpler my meals are, the better. That’s why I am a huge fan of rice and beans. It can’t get any easier (or more budget-friendly) than this! This simple vegan black beans and rice recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make.
I know we all live busy lives to be cooking every single meal. But when you are meal prepped and have a big batch of something already made, it makes living a healthy lifestyle that much more convenient. And this recipe definitely classifies as simple and convenient.
I don’t really share much about my personal life, but I’m also a dog trainer outside of this blogging world. This means I travel pretty often. I am also in the middle of remodeling my house, so I don’t exactly have a full kitchen yet.
When I first went plant-based, I heated up black beans, potatoes, and kale in the microwave for a week. I finally bought a hot plate to cook my meals and started cooking! This is one of my first recipes that I experimented with. Easy and convenient, remember? I’m also fan of a little spice, but if you’re not, forgo the chili powder. You can also serve this dish with a side of kale or wrap it up in a tortilla!
1 can black beans
1 cup water
½ cup wild and grain rice
1 ⅔ cup water
½ onion, diced
3 garlic cloves
juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon chili powder
pink salt & pepper to taste
Add ½ cup of wild and grain rice to 1 ⅔ cup of water. Reduce the heat and cover for 30 minutes
While the rice is cooking, add a few tablespoons of water to a skillet and add the garlic & onions
Sauté for 3 minutes or until lightly brown
Next, add black beans, 1 cup of water, chili powder, salt, and pepper to the skillet and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes
Once the beans are soft, take your spatula and smush the beans enough to thicken the mixture
Then squeeze in the lime juice and serve with the rice!
