  • 1 tbsp  vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 cup crushed tomatoes 
  • 1 cup vegetable stock 
  • 1 cup cooked red kidney beans 


  1. Heat the oil in a skillet on medium-high heat, then add the onion and garlic and saute for 2 minutes.
  2. Next the spices and mix all together for 1 minute until evenly coated. 
  3. Add the rice, crushed tomatoes, vegetable stock and kidney beans and bring to a boil, then cover and let simmer on low for 30 minutes. 
  4. Once done, fluff the rice up with a fork. 


Use fresh onion and garlic in this recipe. These will help build up a lot of flavours in the rice and beans!

Use a good quality veggie stock. Since the rice will absorb the flavour from the stock, you want to start off with a really good-tasting stock!
