Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 onions, finelly chopped 100 g
1 clove garlic, finelly chopped
1 green peppers, cut into dices 150 g
1 tsp ground cumin 3 g
1 tsp paprika 3 g
1 tsp dried oregano 1 g
1 cup basmati rice 200 g
1 tbsp tomato paste 15 mL
2 cups red beans (canned), or pinto, drained and rinsed 500 mL
2 cups vegetable broth, low-sodium 500 mL

ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, pepper and garlic then sauté, with occasional stirring, for 2-3 min. Add the cumin, paprika, and oregano then cook 1 min with stirring.
  2. Stir in the rice then cook 2 min, until the grains are completely coated in oil. Add the tomato paste broth and beans. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to 'low', cover and simmer until the rice is cooked al dente, about 15-20 min. Adjust the seasoning.
  3. Remove from heat, keep covered, and let stand a 2-3 min. Fluff with a fork then serve in the warmed dishes.
