Congri Rice (cuban cuisine)
2 cups Jasmine rice
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 vidalia onion
1 teaspoon of vegetable vegan bullion
6 Green olives(optional but recommended cut in half)
2 or 3 bay leaves
1/2 red bell pepper
1 can organic black beans(I used the can liquid)
2 cups of water (maybe a little bit more)
1/4 cumin powder
*I did not used salt but feel free to add mineral salt if you need to adjust the flavor.
1. Sauteed your garlic, pepper and onion for a few minutes with a little bit of water or vegetable broth. If liquid evaporates add more. This is an oil free recipe.
2. Add the beans can with liquid and the vegetable bullion give a good stir and add the rest of ingredients. Stir again and cover.
Cook for about 20 minutes or until rice is done.
