Recipe Ingredients for Low Fat Tomato Rice and Beans

1 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
14 1/2 oz diced tomatoes
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 jalapeno pepper
30 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
1 teaspoons kosher salt
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 large onion

Recipe Directions for Low Fat Tomato Rice and Beans

  1. In a one quart saucepan, combine rice with water.

  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, reduce heat to low, and cook for 20 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and let the pan stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

  4. While the rice stands, drain the tomatoes, reserving the juice.

  5. Add enough water to the juice to equal one cup of liquid.

  6. Heat a 10-12 inch skillet over medium-high heat; add in water, garlic, onion and jalapeno.

  7. Cook until the garlic is browned and the jalapeno is fragrant (one minute).

  8. Add the black beans, salt, cumin, and chili powder; stir gently a few times to cook the spices and get beans mixed into the rice (30 seconds).

  9. Stir in the tomato juice mixture and bring to a boil.

  10. Adjust the heat as necessary to maintain a gentle boil; cook and occasionally stir until the beans have absorbed much of the liquid (5-7 minutes).

  11. Add the tomatoes, oregano, cilantro, and cooked rice.

  12. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the rice is warmed (1-2 minutes).
