Beans and Greens dinner
Hello bloggie peeps,
How is your summer going so far? Mine has been pretty uneventful, cleaning and organizing keep me pretty busy in our new tiny cottage house.
Kaiti will be a Junior in the fall and I am proud to say she is excited and hopeful for her future!
Lately I have been cooking some pretty easy to make food, as it is super hot here in Kansas.
If I can make it in 15 minutes or less, it is on my to do list!!
I bought a new rice cooker recently, and I have to say it is pretty darn awesome!! Kaiti makes all the rice in the house and considers herself the owner of said rice cooker. LOL, she just agreed adamantly.
So I have been making alot of the above meal for dinner lately. It is a simple meal of jasmine rice and red beans with kale in it. I serve it with homemade flour tortilla's and it is really filling.
I hope you like it as much as we do!!
1 bag dried red beans, soaked over night and cooked 1 1/2 hour until tender, plus bean juice
1 jar homemade or canned tomato sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
Garlic powder to taste
Cracked black pepper to taste
1 head of kale, chopped
3 rice cooker cups of rice, cooked
Homemade or store bought flour tortilla's, as many as you need
Homemade pico de gallo, if using
1 avocado cubed, if using
Place your beans and greens in the bottom of a bowl, top with a large spoonful of jasmine rice. Add pico de gallo and avocado and serve each bowl with a flour tortilla.
Serves alot, I usually have leftovers and eat it for breakfast the next morning!!
Well since I have been so absent from this blog, I am hoping that some of you are still around patiently waiting for me to post, so you can comment! Tonight I am making black bean and quinoa taco's with avocado. If I can find my darn camera I will post it tomorrow!
Until then, I hope you have a great night!!
