simple and hearty: rice n' beans.

I have been seeing this around the blog world and I have had a craving to whip up my own version every since! (See Sunshine Delicatessen & Kath Eats!)

I definitely took the easy route here folks....

I used the following:
1/2 tbs olive oil
1/4 large onion diced
1 clove garlic
2 handfuls of spinach
1/2 c. cooked brown rice
1/2 can of navy beans
1/2 c. salsa
As much of your favorite cheese as you want ! :)

Heat up the olive oil on medium in a pan and saute garlic and diced onions until soft. Add navy beans. Stir constantly until liquid dissolves. Add delicious salsa of your choice and stir throughout. Add cooked brown rice and let simmer for 3-5 minutes.  Toss in the spinach for the last minutes of heating the rice. Serve with shredded cheese of your choice!
