- 1T olive oil
- 1 can pinto (or black) beans
- 1 bag Bird’s Eye Steamfresh “Long grain white rice with mixed vegetables” – this is like 80 cents at Walmart, in the frozen vegetables aisle. It comes in a blue bag.
- Nutritional yeast to taste
- Celery salt to taste
- Seasoned salt to taste
- Whatever seasonings you like and have on hand
Pop the rice in the microwave for 4 minutes. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Drain and rinse the beans, then pour onto a clean dishcloth to dry off a little. Put the beans in the skillet.
When the rice is done, put it in the skillet with the beans. Add spices, and stir occasionally for like 3 minutes. Makes 2 big servings. I like my beans kind of dry – if you want it more moist add more olive oil after about a minute of cooking.
