Easy Rice And Beans Recipe 

SOFLY Easy Healthy Rice And Beans

Here is my version of the New Orleans Rice and Beans. Easy to make, packed with fiber, nutrients, hearty and healthy.

Preparation time is about one hour. I like to soak the beans for a few hours, but it is optional.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of dry red kidney beans (3 cups of water)
  • ½ cup of brown rice to 1 cup of water
  • One avocado
  • Greens (spinach, kale, or any other dark leafy greens)

Directions:

Beans

  • Discard any broken beans or bits of the debris before cooking.
  • Rinse beans and drain.
  • Beans may be soaked overnight, but the pressure cooker allows you to cook beans without presoaking. 
  • You may add garlic, celery, sprigs of fresh herbs, or a bay leaf may be added for additional flavor. I use paprika, cayenne, and cumin for seasoning.
  • Do not salt before cooking as salt inhibits cooking. 
  • Cook using “High Pressure” for 25 minutes (soaked) and 35 minutes for un-soaked beans, followed by the Natural Pressure Release.

Rice

  • Mix rice and with water.
  • Bring to boil.
  • Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.

You can use the fresh salad or use water to pan sauté over medium-high heat.

Garnish with love and avocado! You can add corn, tomatoes, and whatever your heart desires.

Sometime during the dark night of the soul, none of my old tricks seemed to work. As I watch the storm and the darkness wrapping around my brain and my heart, the scale number went up.

There is a way out, but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t reach the door to the other side.
