I made some black bean chili last week (black beans, canned tomatoes,
saute'd onions and carrots, spices) - from scratch - a crockpot full.
And added a "secret ingredient" - brown rice, which I added when I
started to cook the (presoaked) beans - overnight at high in the
crockpot. All my SAD friends who ate it thought it was *great*, and that
it contained m**t (actually, no added f*t, no added m**t - just what was
in the rice, etc ;-)
Given that my SAD friends won't knowingly eat VLF-veg, I thought it was a
great hit when they all took seconds!
1 pound of black beans, soaked starting in the early a.m.
1 c. brown rice (med. grain)
28 oz. can diced tomatoes with sauce
2-3 med./lg. onions, chopped
3 lg. carrots, diced
garlic cloves to taste, chopped
chili powder to taste
cumin to taste
Cook brown rice and soaked beans in water to cover in crockpot set to
high (overnight). In the morning, add saute'd veggies, canned tomatoes
and spices. Continue cooking on high (watch the water level) until dinner
for flavors to blend. Serve over rice/potatoes/tortillas, etc.
