All Beans & Brown Rice--Great Health & Fabulous Taste

All Beans & Brown Rice--Great Health & Fabulous Taste

I serve these over brown rice or alone. Substitute dry spices for fresh by using half the amount recommended in recipe. In a fix, use low-salt Tony Chachere's, garlic, onion, salt, pepper, & worschesters to spice up beans in a crock pot. Use J & D's bacon salt as a meat substitute

"This is one of my favorites because it is easy, fast and simple and versatile. If you like brown rice, I recommend using it in this and all recipes. It takes a bit longer to cook but is worth the wait, for both nutrition and taste. There is an instant brown rice on the market now, too."
