1 tsp canola oil
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 tsp minced garlic
1-1/2 cups fat-free chicken broth (low sodium)

1-1/2 cups cooked kidney beans (or 1 15-oz. can), drained and rinsed

Pinch cayenne pepper

Cook brown rice according to package directions. For 3 cups cooked, you need 1 cup of rice and 2 cups water.

Combine chicken broth and flour; add to sauce pan. Add frozen vegetables, beans and herbs and heat to boiling; reduce heat and simmer, covered, until chicken vegetables are tender, about 6 minutes.
