For Meatless Monday Week 7, Kamaal and I show you how to make BBQ Black Beans with Chick'n & Rice. It’s a very hearty dish that is easy to prepare and makes a great "centerpiece" for your vegan dinner. Great use of homemade BBQ sauce also!
Preparation and Assembly Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 - 15 minutes
Yield: 4 - 6 servings
½ sweet onion, chopped
4 pieces Gardein™ chick’n “breast”, cut into large chunks, or 2 ½ cups chopped vegan chicken substitute
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (15 oz.) can black beans, washed and drained
1 ½ cups BBQ Sauce
Sea salt (optional)
Oil for sautéing
3 cups cooked rice
- In a large skillet or frying pan, add a small amount of oil and sauté the chopped onion, chick'n and cumin on medium-high heat until the onions become translucent and the chick'n is slightly brown and firm.
- Add the black beans and BBQ sauce and continue to cook for a couple of minutes, stirring constantly so that the beans won’t stick. Taste. Add more cumin or a dash of sea salt if necessary and let simmer for about five minutes. Serve over a bed of cooked rice. Makes 4 – 6 servings.
