This is a very simple dish that you can make with 1 can of Black Beans. It is super easy to cook if you have rice cooker. Today I used Cumin and Coriander Seeds to season, but you can use any Spices and Herbs of your choice. It can be Mexican, Mediterranean, Moroccan, Indian, OR any flavour.
1/2 Onion finely chopped
1 clove Garlic *finely chopped
1 tablespoon Olive Oil OR Oil of your choice
2 cups (*180ml cup) Long Grain Rice
400ml Chicken Stock OR Stock of your choice *must be cooled
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Ground Coriander Seeds
*Note: You can use any other Spices and Herbs of your choice
1/4 teaspoon Salt *alter the amount depending on the saltiness of the stock
Ground Black Pepper OR Chilli as required
1 can (400g) Black Beans *drained and rinsed
Coriander Leaves *optional, you can use Spring Onion, Parsley, etc.
Extra Black Pepper OR Chilli *optional
- Place Onion and Garlic in the rice cooker’s inner pot. Drizzle with Olive Oil.
- Rinse Rice, drain well, and spread over the Onion and Garlic.
- Add Chicken Stock (OR Stock of your choice), Spices and Salt, but DO NOT stir. Spread drained Black Beans on top and start cooking. *Note: I added finely chopped Stock Cube.
- When the rice is cooked and steamed, gently mix to combine, sprinkle with some Coriander Leaves (OR chopped Spring Onion, Parsley, etc.) and extra Black Pepper (OR Chilli), and serve. *Note: I added some wedges of Lime.
