this is what of those times when i was trying to whip up a quick thing, didn’t taste while i was cooking, thought might suck but magically turned out to be the BEST RICE AND BEANS I’VE EVER HAD.

it sounds unexciting, it is not.

RICE + BEANS

2 c. cooked long grain rice (white or brown) cooked in broth

a bunch of scallions, chopped with white and green separated

4 big mushrooms, sliced thin

1 heaped tbsp ground cumin

1 heaped tbsp chilli powder

1 tbsp cumin seeds

1 tsp ground coriander

big pinch chili flakes

zest of 1 lime, and half of the juice

4 cloves garlic, minced

3/4 of a can chopped tomatoes (no spices!)

1 small can adzuki beans, rinsed

big handful chopped cilantro

black pepper (no salt! cooking the rice in broth should be salty enough)

firstly, cook your rice. once it is done:

heat some olive oil in a big pot and sauté white parts of scallions and cook for a minute. add mushrooms until slightly browned. add spices and stir until fragrant, add another tbsp oil if it dries up. add rice and stir until coated. add tomatoes and garlic. let cook and warm through for 10 minutes. add lime and zest. top with scallions and cilantro, mix through and eat!
