Basic Rice and Beans
Simple and comforting, rice and black beans are a great accompaniment to a variety of dinners. Serve this under any meat or fish.
Saucepan with Lid
- 1 cup White Rice
- 1 1/4 cups Water
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 14 oz can Black Beans
Rinse rice in a strainer until water runs clear.
Combine rice, water and salt in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Cook until all of the water has evaporated, about 18 minutes.
Remove pan from heat but leave the lid on and let the rice stand, covered, for 15 minutes more to steam. Rinse and drain the beans and stir into the rice. Season with additional salt, if needed.
