What's for dinner?

So after a crazy week & not buying enough chicken or shrimp or fish this week, we have a super fast vegetarian dinner.

Beans & Rice
Serves 2

2/3 cup brown rice
1 can black beans, rinsed & drained
1/2 yellow onion, roughly chopped
1 zucchini, roughly chopped
1/2 teaspoon oregano

Cook rice with a pinch of salt according to directions or in a rice cooker.

Heat 1 teaspoon EVOO in a pan over medium heat. Saute onion with a bit of salt until they begin to soften, about 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat & add beans, oregano & as much freshly ground pepper as you'd like & simmer for 10 minutes. Add zucchini & cook until some of the beans begin to break down & thicken, & the zucchini is tender, about 5 minutes more.

Serve over rice & enjoy! Remember you can always trade out black beans for any kind of bean that you'd like, and the zucchini as well for any fresh veggies that you have on hand. Make it what you like! But be sure to share!
