I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Do you have one? I dont want a packaged mix I want one that is with fresh veggies and rice and beans. I will even make my own sofrito, my biggest problem is how to get it to cook without the rice getting mushy or having extra liquid in the pot when the rice is cooked. HELP

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
I am confused a bit.

What exactly do you need? A dish that includes black beans, veggies and rice? Or instructions on how to not make the rice watery?

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Found this on the internet, not bad. I add some type of pork or pork fat because I'm an infidel and we do that kinda stuff.


5 tbs olive oil
1 red pepper chopped (or green)
2 small to medium onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp oregano, ground
½ tsp coriander, ground
½ tsp cumin, ground
1 tsp turmeric, ground
¼ tsp red pepper flakes
1 28 oz can of tomatos, italian style, whole or diced
1½-2½ cups vegetable or chicken stock
1 cup black beans (pre-soaked, canned or flakes)
¼ cup wild rice
¾ cup basmati rice (or any rice)
salt
black pepper
1 cup grated old cheddar or any cheese that suits your fancy



Sauté in 3 Tbsp. olive oil; onion, pepper and garlic until nearly tender.

Add 2 Tbs. olive oil in cleared center of pan and once heated through, add oregano, coriander, cumin, turmeric and red pepper flakes.

Sauté spices one minute in oil then quickly mix vegetables and seasonings together and sauté another couple minutes.
Alternately, if the frying of the spices is too powerful for you, they may be added when the stock is added.

Heat tomatos in a 6-quart pot and add the sautéd vegetable spice mixture, stock and black beans. Bring to a boil.
Add wild rice and rice and reduce heat to a slow simmer. If using bean flakes they are to be added now.

Cover and cook ten minutes or until the liquid is mostly absorbed (as with cooking rice).

Salt and pepper to taste.

Remove from heat and let stand, covered for five minutes. May be served with grated cheese on top.

Both

I usually make a sofrito, than put sofrito, oil, onion and green pepper in tiny peices in a pot add 3 cups of rice and 4 cans of black beans or 1 pk dried after soaking,and 3 cups water. I either burn the bottom of the pot, or if I put 4 cups water its soggy rice or too much liquid. my flavor is good, just dont like the consistancy, so I was looking for another good authentic recipe

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Rice is not that hard... I started using regular rice a few years ago. I never had before that because I think my mom never could cook regular rice, just the stuff in the bag that you boil.

Read the directions on the bag. It specifically says DO NOT LIFT THE POT LID while it is cooking. I usually take it off the heat about 5 minutes early and just let it sit and absorb the rest of the liquid, then stir before serving. I have never had an issue with it being too watery.

For the black beans, omg you can do so many things. I have used canned, but I've also used the bag kind that you soak over night - those tasted better. So get your beans ready, and a pot with some onions, garlic... I also like to add diced tomatoes, white pepper, chili powder (just a bit), oh and carrots, I love the color contrast.

In this case, I would begin by sauteing the veggies in some olive oil. Just because it will take loner for things like carrots and garlic to soften then it will for the beans to cook. When they are looking nice and brown, add the beans and stir. Wait until it bubbles and let it reduce a bit so its more like a chili then a soup (that's the case with the canned beans anyway, if you use the soaked beans, add some chicken broth for liquid, just a little though, 1/2 cup maybe, you want it to boil off mostly).

So when the beans are the consistency you want, and the rice if finished and fluffed, combine and serve. You were not trying to cook them together were you?

Anyway, hope that helps. I use recipes for some things, mostly things that have to bake, like my corn casserole, but when it comes to throwing stuff like beans and veggies in a pot I just go with what I like and keep going until it tastes good.

I love black beans though. Make soup in the autumn and winter months. Its fantastic. I make my own garlic croutons to add. OMG, divine.

 Quoting: flavapor


cook the rice separately and add at the right time. The recipe will thus have more flavor, because in any soup or casserole dish, rice and pastas soak up the good flavor of the broth. this is a secret my grandmother taught me after i left home and my stuff was not as good as her stuff. Cook these separately in water or broths of choice depending on your recipe and add later. Your soup brothes will have greatly clarity and be less cloudy also.

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Wait....you like canned black beans?! You know how much cheaper dried beans are, and you can flavor them as you like. I refuse to buy canned anymore, since they are overpriced, and aren't as good.

For a quick black beans, I just throw one smoked ham hock, chicken broth, bay leaves, garlic(roastet), salt and pepper, cook til soft. I soak my beans the night before too. Cooks quicker, and not as gassy.

Good cuban black beans: [link to www.food.com]

For rice, I am addicted to jasmine rice(three horse brand). A little more pricy, but has an amazing scent. Love short grain Japanese rice, or brown jasmine rice. I can't eat much gluten, so I have become a rice snob. I have a rice cooker that does my cooking. I just cook the rice in water or chicken broth with butter, salt and pepper.

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
Soak the beans overnight in water and a bunch of smash garlic cloves. I use 7 cloves for a 1 lb bag. The next day chop an onion, a green pepper, a carrot and 2 stalks of celery and sweat on low heat with a bay leaf, oregano, cumin, coriander and hot peppers of choice to taste. Add the beans, soaking water and garlic plus enough liquid to cover the beans by a few inches. I use veg stock and a beer. Bring to boil then lower heat and simmer a few hours til beans are soft. If you need to add liquid while its cooking add it. Salt after the beans are soft already and you can put cilantro, scallion or chopped red onion and hot sauce or whatever.

Perfect rice ever time is 2 parts liquid to 1 part rice. Boil water first then add rice and salt and bring back to a boil then lower heat and cover and simmer on low 20 min for white rice, 45 min for brown rice. Turn heat off but do not lift lid for 10 min. Then fluff it and eat it.

You can do the rice and beans together in one pot. You still cook the beans til they soft by themselves first then drain them and add them right in with the rice. The same amount of cooked beans as dry rice is perfect proportion.Same amount of liquid as if it was just the rice alone. That was me with the recipe above i just forgot to sign in.

Re: I need a good black beans and rice recipe from scratch
This is the one I use turns out good? 1dunno1
Hopefully you already got the info you needed! :


Black Beans and Rice


1-1/4 cups dried black beans
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup chopped green pepper
5 or 6 large garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
3 cups water
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
3 cups cooked white or brown rice, hot (cooked according to package directions)
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup chopped green onions
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
Sort and wash the beans; place in a Dutch oven. Cover beans with 2 inches of water; let soak 8 hours. Drain. 

Heat a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil, and sauté the onion, green pepper and garlic until tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the beans, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, wine vinegar and water. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer mixture 1-1/2 hours or until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Do not allow beans to dry out; add a little water if it becomes necessary. 

Stir in the tomato paste, and cook an additional 15 minutes. Serve over rice. Garnish each serving with tomato, green onions, sour cream and cilantro, if desired. Makes 5 or 6 servings, depending upon appetites.


Note: Dried beans cook faster if they are soaked. Cover beans with 2 inches of water, soak them overnight, drain, and then cook according to your recipe. A shortcut to overnight soaking is to cover the beans with plenty of water, bring them to a boil and boil for 2 minutes. Then, turn off the heat, cover tightly, and let them sit for 1 hour. Then, drain and cook as usual. 

People in areas with hard water can cook their beans till the cows come home, and the beans will still be tough or not thoroughly done. If you have that problem, add a scant 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda to the cooking water, and you will have one less problem.
