Zucchini, Black Bean and Rice Skillet
1 T Canola Oil
1 1/2 c quartered zucchini
1/2 c diced green pepper
1 c black beans, drained and rinsed (I used low sodium)
1 can fire roasted tomato with garlic- not rinsed
3/4 c water
1 c instant white rice - uncooked (I used brown rice)
1/2 c shredded cheese
Heat zucchini and green pepper with the oil for about 5 minutes.
Add beans, tomatoes and water and bring to boil.
Add rice and stir well.Cover and remove from heat until water is absorbed. (It took about 10 minutes with the brown rice). Sprinkle cheese on top and enjoy!
It makes 4 servings at 276 calories if you follow the original recipe. I didn't calculate the calories for the changes I made, but it's slightly less.
Let me leave you with this friendly warning:
