2 cups brown rice
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 (15 oz) can black beans
1 packette “TastyTime” Madras Lentils and sauce* (available at Costco)
2 cloves garlic, minced
Put Brown Rice, 3 1/2 cups water, and soy sauce in slow cooker on high for 3 hours. Add beans, lentils and garlic, stir well and simmer on low another 1-2 hours. Serve over vegan spoonable cornbread.
*I tossed the box the packettes came in to make room in the cupboard. The ingredient list was on the box. The samples person at Costco said it was vegan, so I have to take her word for it this time. Seems like I saw it on the box, too. If you can’t find this tasty goo, or want to be more sure of the vegan aspect, substitute 1 to 1 1/2 cups cooked lentils and your favorite vegan tomato sauce with your choice of spices like chili powder, cayenne pepper, etc.
As always, (sigh), I get no compensation for any brand names or retailers mentioned in any post on this blog.
