Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 15 min
1 Place the onion and bell pepper in a non-stick pan with the vegetable broth. Cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables soften slightly, about 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except the buns) and cook for about 12 minutes, until well heated.
Hint: There are many delicious barbecue sauces on the market shelves these days. Choose one without oil and preferably without high fructose corn syrup. Use another kind of bean to vary the recipe, or maybe one can each of pinto and black or white. There are several manufacturers that make frozen cooked whole grain brown rice that reheats in the microwave in 3 minutes. Trader Joe’s stocks one brand and Whole Foods also carries another brand. Look for these items in the frozen food department.
