SPICY RED BEANS AND BROWN RICE

 

Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook
by Neal Barnard and Robyn Webb

This soul-warming dish is a cinch. Chipotle peppers give it a Southern flare. If you make a bit extra, you'll have the filling on hand for an easy burrito,
Red beans and rice is a symbolic dish of Louisiana Creole cuisine, traditionally made on Mondays, with red beans spooned over rice and often served with a bottle of hot sauce. The combination of rice and beans provides a good balance of all the essential amino acids that make a complete protein.
