After taking a quick look in my pantry and fridge I came up with the following recipe! Not only does it smell wonderful, but after a quick taste for seasonings I can tell you that I was even blown away by my own snap creativity
1 package Uncle Ben's Ready Rice (check to make sure it's vegan, or if you don't care then I don't care!)
2 1/2 cups raw broccoli florets
1 cup mushrooms, roughly chopped
1 can (15 oz) pinto beans
2 green onions, chopped
Salt and black pepper
Steam broccoli florets until extremely tender. Meanwhile,cook rice according to package directions.
Pour rice into a serving dish. Add pinto beans, mushrooms and green onions. Add steamed broccoli and stir to combine. Broccoli will fall apart and "melt" into the rice mixture. Add seasonings, taste and adjust as needed.
