This recipe for red beans and rice is topped with a forest of steamed broccoli.
1 cup brown rice
1-8 ounce can no-added-salt tomato sauce
1/2 cup sliced green onion
1-8 ounce can kidney beans, undrained
2 cups water
1/4 tsp each: fennel seed, thyme, garlic powder
pinch of cayenne pepper
4 cups broccoli florets
Preheat oven to 350º. Place brown rice, tomato sauce, green onion, kidney beans, water and seasonings in a large casserole or Dutch oven. Bring to a boil, cover and place in the oven until the rice is done and most of the liquid has evaporated - about 30-40 minutes.
Meanwhile, when rice is almost done, steam broccoli florets until tender. Serve broccoli florets over the top.
