From: Ian Bailey-Mortimer

Red kidney beans and brown rice are good together with .. hmm, I think I usually use rosemary and basil or similar.

And if you have a little extra to work with, try this one (which I had a few days ago - yum!) ..

  • 3 cupwater
  • 2 cup chopped, packed kale or spinach
  • 1 1/2 cup jasmine rice or basmati rice
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • red pepper flakes - to taste
  • 15 oz cooked red kidney beans
  • 1/4 cup chopped parsley
1.Combine water, kale, rice, and dried seasonings in a medium saucepan.
Bring to simmer over medium-high heat.
Stir once, cover, and cook over medium-low heat about 15 minutes.

2.Stir in beans and parsley.

3.Fluff rice with fork; turn off heat.
