We used to buy those packages of red beans and rice as an easy meatless meal. Delicious, but loaded with sodium and MSG they definitely weren't a healthy choice. Here's a homemade version to try. The rice and beans don't cook in the same pot which I thought was strange at first, but I was able to freeze the leftover red beans to use at a later date! All I had to do was make some fresh brown rice and I had a healthy meal ready to go in no time!
Mash one can of beans (to thicken the mixture). Add the mashed beans, remaining can of beans, tomatoes, broth, and spices to the dutch oven,.
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and slightly thickened.
Serve over brown rice.
