Black Beans and Rice Recipe


Ingredients

➭55-gram black beans, soaked overnight and cooked until soft or any other beans
➭2 teaspoon vegetable oil
➭½ small onion, chopped
➭1 clove garlic, crushed
➭½ small green pepper, seeded and finely chopped
➭1 tomato, skinned and finely chopped
➭70-gram long-grain rice

Methods of preparation

Drain the cooked beans and mash 1 tablespoon to a paste with a fork, adding a little water if necessary. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion, garlic, and pepper until soft, stirring occasionally. Add the tomato and cook for a further 2 minutes.
Add the bean paste and stir to mix. Add the cooked beans and rice, and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes, until the rice is just cooked, stirring occasionally.
Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve hot, garnished with a fresh herb sprig.
