Everyone loves beans and rice, especially when it's done as easily as this.
|1||tablespoon||extra virgin olive oil|
|1||cup||brown rice, uncooked|
|1||(15-ounce) can||black beans, drained and rinsed|
|1||(15-ounce) can||pinto beans, drained and rinsed|
|1||(15-ounce) can||diced tomatoes, liquid reserved|
|½||tablespoon||dried onion flakes|
- Film the bottom of the crockpot with olive oil, then add the rice. Toss to coat rice with olive oil. Add the beans and drained tomatoes.
- Add water to the tomato liquid, to bring the liquid to 2 full cups. Add 2 cups of tomato juice/water mixture to the crockpot. Then, add seasonings, stir well, and cover.
- Cook on low for 6 hours, or on high for 3-4 hours. You'll know it's ready when the rice is tender.
