Rice and Beans

The kids asked what we were having for dinner tonight, and for lack of a better name, I said, "rice and beans".  If I had used white rice, the entire meal could have been ready to eat in 20 minutes.  I used brown rice so it took a little longer.

In saucepan, saute onions and garlic in olive oil.  Add a can of chopped tomatoes (hopefully by next month, I'll be using fresh tomatoes), a can of kidney beans and a can of black beans.  I drained the beans, but left the liquid from the tomatoes in to make a sauce.

Add plenty of cumin, and a little salt.  Serve over rice.  Fast, easy, tasty dinner.
(The picture is my 8-year-old's second helping.  He gave the meal a 9 out of 10, claiming it lost a point because it had onions.)
