Food / From My Table

From My Table- Quick Red Beans and Rice

I have to hold myself back from including  “quick and easy”  to the title of every meal I make.

But the truth is, I don’t have the patience to make a long meal after work. I’m hungry! So, my meals are quick and easy. With help from meal prep on the weekend, this one came together in less than 20 minutes.

I pulled cooked rice and beans from the freezer and combined them with sautéed green peppers, onions and low sodium sausage. Lately I need some flavor in my food, so I added tons of black pepper, chili powder and oregano. Thew in a splash of homemade veggie stock to deglaze the pan (pull up all of the brown onion bits from the bottom of the pan) and it was ready!
