Contributed by: Deborah Hayes blog 04/14/2005Added: Feb 15, 2008 at 03:34 AM

  • olive oil
  • white onion - diced
  • minced garlic (I love garlic - one heaping tablespoon)
  • cooked pinto beans (1/2 to 1 cup)
  • sea salt
  • brown rice (1 cup)
  • finely chopped parsley (a lot)
  • alfalfa sprouts
  • dry mustard powder (optional)
How to make it:
  1. Saute onions and garlic. Add cooked beans. Add salt.
  2. After about five minutes, pour two cups of water into pan and add one cup of brown rice. Cook for 40 minutes.
  3. Remove cover and add the chopped parsley and alfalfa sprouts.
  4. Simmer five minutes, taste. I was surprised that it tasted good enough at this point. In my humble opinion, no other seasonings were required.
  5. After the fact, I added a little bit of mustard powder and decided that was great for me, but too strong for my little one.
