I am eventually going to be trying to make fusion recipes…Asian Fusion. Tonight I made some Asian dishes….I haven’t posted them because I have posted them previously but I am posting a Spanish rice and bean recipe. This is an easy dish that feeds many and is real good…so give it a try. I got it from Ingrid Hoffmann at the Food Channel.
1 onion, finely chopped
1 red bell peppers, chopped
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 bay leaves
2 tsps. ground cumin
1 cups long-grain white rice
2 (14-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed (I used a combo of pink beans and kidney beans…you can use whatever combination you have on hand)
1 (14-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles drained
1 cups water
3 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Stir in the rice, black beans, tomatoes, water, vinegar and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the rice is tender. Serve hot.
