Before you start
Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
- 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.
- 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.
- Remove from heat, keep covered, and let stand a 2-3 min. Fluff with a fork then serve in the warmed dishes.
