Three bean pilaf

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 tablespoons Water
1 medium Onion, chopped
2 cups Long grain brown rice
4 cups Vegetable broth or water
1 can (15-oz) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15-oz) garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15-oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can (15-oz) stewed tomatoes
1 can (4-oz) chopped green chilies
2 cups Frozen corn kernels

I'm always looking for good high protein meals (rice and beans together) that I can freeze into individual portions. This turned out tasty and froze pretty well. It's from the New McDougall Cookbook.

Heat the water in a large heavy saucepan. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, until the onion softens. Add the rice, vegetable broth, canned beans, and the tomatoes. Stir and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat until the mixture boils gently. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Stir in the chilies and corn. Cover and cook for 15 minutes longer. Let rest for 15 minutes before serving.

I was short on brown rice when I made it, so I threw in a little black japonica rice to make up the difference. I thought it added a nice color and texture. Also, the corn I used was very sweet, and I thought that really added zing to the mixture. If you can find sweet corn, I'd recommend using it.
