When stuck for what to eat, beans are always a good choice.
Chilli red beans with rice, and salad.
Refried red beans with flour tortillas, green salad and guacamole.
Sweet and sour red beans with rice – well usually just sour for our taste – and some raw pickle.
Last night we had sour red beans, ie beans with chillis and vinegar – only had balsamic vinegar in the cupboard, but it worked well as it added a slightly sweet flavour without tasting sugary. Couldn’t resist chucking in a few more spices though, so it ended up being hot, spicy and sour beans – with rice.
There was a little rice left and a few beans – just right for my lunch today. Except they had been stolen for someone else’s breakfast when I was snoozing away.
