Hello omnivores, herbivores, and carnivores! Today, I present...dinner on
Fast, nutritious, and easily modified.
You will need:
one 15 0z. can black beans (frijoles negros)
one small package Vigo (brand) yellow rice
one large banana, preferably overripe, sliced
1/4 cup chopped onion, preferably purple
2 tablespoons oil
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Tip: The riper the banana, the less cooking time it will need.
Make rice in sauce pan, according to directions on label. Rinse and drain
black beans thoroughly. Heat saute pan and add oil. When oil is hot, add onion
and cinnamon. Cook until onion is almost transparent. Add black beans and
cook until heated through. Add bananas and cook until soft and warm. Serve
beans over rice.
1) Use orange juice instead of oil for sauteeing
onions (4 tablespoons orange juice).
2) Toast cinnamon first by heating saute
pan, over high heat, and adding cinnamon. Cook until fragrant; approx. 15
seconds. Now add oil, or juice, and onion. Garnish with chopped green onions.
Garnish with sour cream, chicken, tomatoes, coconut, beef, pork, or grated
Yours in butterfat,
