  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of TVP — textured vegetable protein
  • 1/2 of a yellow onion, minced
  • 2 tablespoons of smoked paprika
  • 2 tablespoons of ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon of dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup of uncooked brown rice
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 15-ounce can of black beans, drained and rinsed

  3. Add tomatoes and bell pepper, breaking up tomatoes with a wooden spoon. Cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Pour your rice into the pot and stir until well combined. Then add your broth and black beans and stir.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 1-2 hours on a very low heat.
  6. Spoon into bowl and serve with a nice crusty bread. Garnish with finely diced jalapeños.
