Rice & Black Beans

Yummy and filling! Again, you could add chicken for a complete meal.

1 tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can black beans, drained & rinsed
2/3 c. water
1 1/2 c. instant brown rice
2 roma tomatoes, diced
garlic powder (to taste)
onion powder (to taste)
basil (to taste)

In a large saucepan, cook and stir onion in oil until tender and translucent, but not brown. Add tomatoes, beans, and spices. Bring to boil. Stir in rice, return mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer, and cover.

Let mixture simmer for 5 minutes. Remove pan from heat and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
