Black Beans and Rice

Last night was feeling sick and I was in dire need of a homemade meal.
I threw some dried black beans into a pot and just let them boil away for a couple of hours before cooking up some rice and throwing raw ingredients on top.
I'm not sure why, but I was craving raw red onion. It topped the dish off well.

Today I feel much better and am convinced the homemade meal did it's job :)

Hey Teddy! Thanks for dropping by my blog. If you have an Amazon account and have bought books from them before, you should be able to find the Real Food Daily recipe for Ranch Dressing by doing a "search inside" using the keyword Ranch--it's on pg 112. If that won't work for you, just send me an email (using the address provided on my blogger profile) and I can email the recipe to you. I'm no expert on Ranch dressing, but to my taste this one wasn't bad.

Glad your homemade dinner did the trick to help you feel better.

This looks delicious!!! You are very creative. It makes sense that you'd crave raw sometimes as your climate is warmer. Onion? Hmmm...
Paul Pitchford says onions, "lower blood pressure, decrease phlegm and inflamation of the nose & throat, inhibits allergic reactions, induces swaeting and is a cure for the common cold". Interesting, huh?

we call it 'sagra', which is an old word for 'village party' kind of! :)

Teddy, hi!--if you email me through my blogger profile I will send you the recipe for the ranch dressing. I think I tried to post a message like this to your blog before, but it hasn't shown up--maybe you moderate comments, or maybe I accidentally cancelled it at last minute?

I'm glad you're feeling a little better. I'm sure it's your simple tasty dish that did it! We often discount simple foods but one of my favorite lunches is just beans, seasoned rice and enchilada sauce. I could eat it several times a week without getting bored.
