One Pot Rice and Blackbeans Recipe

One Pot Rice and Blackbeans

This is a simple and delicious one pot dish. The dish can be ready in about 20 minutes, with minimal effort required. The end result is like risotto, creamy with a rich sauce. 

Meat, fish or vegetables can be added, if preferred.

Don’t be shy with salt, the dishes uses a lot.

Ingredients
·   50 ml rice
·   150 ml water, boiling
·   50ml tomato puree
·   100 ml cooked blackbeans
·   ½ onion, chopped
·   1 clove garlic, minced
·   ½ teaspoon mixed spice of your choice
·   1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar (optional)
·   1 tablespoon oil

Directions
·   Saute onions and garlic over medium heat until translucent
·   Add tomato puree and cook for about 5 minutes
·   Add rice, beans and water and cook covered until rice is done, about 15-20 minutes
·   Optional: Drizzle some olive oil or stir in some butter before serving, for extra flavour and creaminess.
