Cook together for a few minutes (until heated through and the flavors meld a bit)

    2-4 cups brown rice, one can of beans and 1 can diced tomatos all for 1 serving? I don't think so. I'm planning on trying it however just not eating it all in one setting... Will try adding some extra vegis and putting it into a pita for a sandwich. - 10/16/08
