Beans and rice are the staples of a vegetarian diet. This recipe is a kid pleaser, and super simple and quick if you use canned beans. Don’t forget to use Eden Foods canned beans to avoid BPA leaching, and of course, always use organic ingredients. This is another great recipe modified from The Garden of Vegan.
