Black Beans and Rice

It doesn’t get much easier than this. I love that the rice cooker does all the heavy lifting.  And if you buy Cuban-style black beans at Trader Joe’s you really don’t have to add all the other ingredients either. 


2 cups basmati or other long grain white rice

2 cans black beans, drained

1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies

1 small onion, diced

3 cloves of garlic, diced

2 teaspoons cumin

3 cups water


  • Mix all the ingredients in a rice cooker and steam until rice is fully cooked – about 20 minutes.
  • If you don’t have a rice cooker, then just cook the rice as its recommended on the package and then mix in all the other ingredients, except the water, after its cooked.
