Amazing Veggies with Rice and Black Eye Beans

by Andrea

So, when I'm not sure what to make for dinner I usually just throw something together with rice, veggies, and beans depending on what I have on hand. Last night I put together this dish and it was so delicious I think it's going to become a regular weekly meal!

I had a zucchini (that I knew was about to go bad soon), some portobello mushrooms, and some black eye beans I wasn't sure what to do with. I ALWAYS keep onions and garlic in the house at all times, because I add them to almost every meal! I had a lot of extra Kale this week because it was on sale at Whole Foods. So, here is what I came up with:

1 zucchini sliced into matchsticks
1 yellow onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
6-8 portobello mushrooms
6 pieces of lacinto kale(removed from stem and broken into pieces)
1 can black eye beans
1 cup organic brown rice
3 tablespoons Bragg Liquid Aminos (or low-sodium Tamari)
Cayenne Pepper and Sea Salt to taste

First, I started cooking the rice in a separate pan (or rice cooker if you have one). Meanwhile, I sauteed the garlic, onions, mushrooms, and zucchini in a tablespoon of coconut oil over medium heat for about 5 min.

I reduced the heat to medium-low, then added the beans and kale. I added a little cayenne and 1-2 tablespoons of Bragg liquid aminos and stirred it together. Once the rice was finished, I added it to the veggie mix, added the remaining Bragg's and mixed it all up.
(*Make sure you don't over cook the veggies, they should still be firm; not mushy!)

You could substitute the veggies and beans for those that you have available!

Amazing Veggies!

We just had this for dinner Andrea, it was delicous and so easy to make. Next time I am going to cut back on the Bragg Liquid Aminos, it was a bit too salty but otherwise we were completely satisfied. Delicous!
