Beans and Rice

"Red beans and rice didn't miss her!"  They sure didn't miss me..... and I cannot lie....This is an easy and delicious recipe for beans and rice.  It's a great vegetarian dish, too, even though we served it with chicken.

{What you need}
1 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
3/4 cup uncooked rice
1 1/2 vegetable broth
1 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp chili powder
2 cans red beans, drained

In a large stockpot over medium heat, heat the oil.  Add the onion and garlic and stir for 4 minutes.  Add the rice and stir for an additional two minutes.  Next, add the broth and bring back up to a boil.  Cover and turn heat down to simmer for 20 minutes or until rice is done.  Add the spices and the beans and stuff your face.
