VeganMoFo - Rice & Beans

Ok, so maybe its not exciting but it was delish. Even my husband, who dislikes the bland mushy idea of rice and beans liked this. Luckily I was pretty smart and added my spices with a measuring spoon. This was a clean out the freezer type of meal as I am almost totally out of fresh veggies. Darn my own laziness in not going to the store this week. But it makes for a good eating cheap and tasty dish. The recipe is as follows!

1T Vegetable Oil
1/2 Onion, diced
1/2t Cumin
1/2t Oregano (Mexican)
1t Chili Powder (Mild)
1t Garlic Powder
Salt & Pepper
1/2c Bell Pepper, diced
1/2c Corn, fresh or frozen
1-2c Soy sausage, either homemade or store bought
15oz Small Red beans, drained
3 Sun Dried Tomatoes
1.2c Rice, white long grain variety
3c Water, divided
8oz Tomato sauce

Soak the dried tomatoes in 1 cup of the water. Saute the onion in the oil on medium heat for 3 minutes. Add in the spices and cook for 2 minutes. Add in the veggies, beans and soysage. Heat through. Add 2 cups of the water and rice to the pot. Dice the tomato and add it and the soaking water to the pot. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer 25 minutes. Stir well and pour on the tomato sauce. Let sit covered for a minute or two before serving.

This was creamy, mild but with an excellent savory flavor. The only crunch to it was the corn as my bell peppers were the frozen kind and are soft when reheated. The delicate oregano adds a nice green note to the overall flavor. I was drinking a very mild table red with dinner that almost completely overpowered the subtle tastes. So I recommend waiting till after you are done to partake.

I did not get a picture, trust me its not very pretty. But it tastes divine.
