Since my success with vegetarian/vegan recipes lately, I figured making another one would turn out just as well (:
Cooking this was quite the adventure since it was a race against my stomach. I should have started making this about an hour before I was actually hungry. I still decided to give the recipe a try. Please don’t turn away just because it’s vegetarian. It was surprisingly delicious!
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 /2 cup of chopped onion
1/2 cup of chopped bell pepper
1/2 cup of cooked brown rice
About 15 oz of Mexican style pinto beans
3/4 cup of hickory smoke barbecue sauce
6-8 whole grain buns
A few squirts of ketchup and mustard to give it a tangy taste
1) Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil. Add brown rice. Cover for about 40 minutes. Rice should be soft.
2) Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-heat. Add onions and green pepper. Cook 2 minutes.
3) Add rice, beans, barbeque sauce and any additional sauces. Simmer about 12 minutes, until heated through.
4) Serve on buns.
