I rated this recipe because it was bland for my tastes. I like savory food. The recipe is easy to make and I will make it often. I will spice it up next time.
Loved this recipe; it is my first attempt making rice and bean...wow what great flavor. I did use coconut oil instead of olive oil and a chopped onion, but followed the rest exactly. I am co-host on the Caribbean forum and your recipe will be the first one I post. hope you come and check us out.
Love Dr. Weil and loved this recipe. I served it with Simple Caribbean Jerk Chicken and Caribbean Cucumber Salad. I typically never overeat and I ate way too much of this rice. I did add some sliced green onions when sauteing the veggies and think you could add just about anything you wanted to. I enjoyed the flavor of the roasted red pepper and cider vinegar. Thanks!
