I think this came from fatfree.com, but I don't know for sure...it's really yummy, though:
Put 2 cups of rice into a pot with the following:
3/4 tsp. ground turmeric
1/4 tsp. ground cumin
4 cups water (or whatever ratio of water your bag of rice recommends)
1 1/4 tsps. salt (optional)
Get this to cooking and then work on the following, placing them into a large skillet:
chop a large onion
chop a green bell pepper (I often find myself short on bell peppers -- I've used 3 celery stalks, a small zucchini, 1/2 cup hominy, etc., whatever else I've got lying around!)
2 or 3 diced carrots
2 or 3 diced or grated cloves of garlic
2 tsps. ground cumin
1 can of chopped tomatoes
1 can black beans
1/2 cup water
as much Jalapeno or other hot pepper as you like
Simmer it all with a lid until the carrots are done to your liking. Spoon over rice.
A dolop of plain soy yogurt is good on top. Or, sometimes we put hot mustards over top...or just eat it plain...it's pretty good stuff whichever way!
Also...tastes good with brown, white, or wild rice.
