Ingredients

4 ⅓ cup water, divided1 ½ cup brown basmati rice½ tsp salt1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil1 cup diced onion2 tsp minced garlic2 can 15-ounce red kidney beans or pink beans, rinsed6 oz sliced Canadian bacon, chopped½ cup chopped celery plus 1 tablespoon finely chopped celery leaves½ cup diced gren bell pepper1 tsp ground chipotle pepper (see note) or cayenne pepper

Directions

1. Combine 3 1/3 cups water, rice and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to low, cover and cook until all the water has been absorbed, about 45 minutes.

2. About 10 minutes before the rice is ready, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until the onion is lightly colored and tender, about 3 minutes.

3. Place 1 cup beans in a small bowl and mash with a fork. Add the mashed and whole beans, the remaining 1 cup water, Canadian bacon, celery, celery leaves, bell pepper and ground chipotle (or cayenne) to the pan. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has thickened into a gravy and the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 6 minutes. Serve in shallow bowls, spooned over the rice.

 

Note: Chipotle peppers are dried, smoked jalapeno peppers. They are often used to add heat and a smoky flavor to foods. Ground chipotle can be found in the specialty spice section of most supermarkets.
