    This vegan adaptation of traditional Spanish Style Beans and Rice is a nice light dish. Plate it with some fresh fruit slices for added color and flavor and you have a lovely, healthy dinner. If you choose to go more traditional, simply hard boil, peel and dice 2 eggs as a topping garnish and add it prior to serving.


    • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
    • 1/2 large green bell pepper, coarsely chopped
    • 1/2 large red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
    • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
    • 2 cups quick-cook brown rice, cooked (Success boil-in-the-bag works great)
    • 1 (15 oz.) can of black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
    • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
    • 2 medium mineola oranges, peeled and wedged (optional)


    1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over a medium-high heat.
    2. Add in the sea salt, peppers and onion and sautéfor about 3 minutes.
    3. Add the pre-cooked brown rice and the cumin and paprika. Cook for 3 minutes then stir in the black beans. Allow to cook until heated through; about 5 minutes.
    4. Plate to a serving dish ringed with orange slices or the fruit of your choice.
    5. Serve immediately.
