I strongly advise you don’t drain your Beans when you boil it because the dark colored water from the Beans adds more flavor to the Rice and also gives the Rice that beautiful tinted look, plus it’s good for you!

I used the long grain Rice that’s why I cooked the Rice for about 15 to 20 minutes. Please follow the cooking instructions for your Rice.

Soaking your Beans might be a good idea because according to studies, it helps reduce the gas-producing properties of the Beans and it shortens the cooking time for a little bit.
