Re: We need a vegetarian meals thread!
This Beans and Rice recipe is quick and one of our favorites. It is so good warmed up as leftovers as well. Gotta have the cheese in my opinion, it almost makes it an Italian dish.
1 T. oil
1 (red) onion
3 cloves garlic
1 15oz can black beans, undrained
1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
1t. dried oregano
2 cups cooked brown rice
mozzarella cheese (optional)
In large saucepan, heat oil over med. high. Add onion, cook and stir until tender. Add garlic, beans, tomatoes and oregano. Bring to a boil; stir in rice. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 5 min. Serve with cheese.
