Easy Caribbean Beans & Rice
from: Kate - Toronto, Canada

I made this the first time last night.
My husband and I both loved it, and it was so easy to make.

  • 2 c cooked rice
  • 1 lg. can red kidney beans
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 green pepper, chopped
  • 1 lg. stalk of celery, chopped to 1/4" pieces
  • 1 pouch vege broth powder
  • 3/4 c hot water
  • 1 tsp. corn starch, mixed in 2 tbs. cold water
  • 1-2 tsp. Jerk sauce (we like Grace)
Mix hot water and vege broth in large, non-stick frying pan; bring to a boil.
Add beans and veges and simmer for 5-10 mins., until celery is slightly soft.
Mix jerk sauce with 1 tsp. water and stir in.
Cover and simmer for 2 mins.

Add corn starch and stir until thickened.

Serve over rice.
