New This Month

A pairing for the ages -- and a beautifully balanced source of protein -- rice and black beans crackle with flavor, thanks to jalapeno, onions, and garlic. In this version, hearty long-grain brown rice stands in for the traditional white variety, offering an extra measure of substance.

    Martha, you've let me down. I'm afraid that the vinegar is making these beans tough. I'm reading that acid should not be added until after the beans are soft.

    My children 3 and 6 really like this recipe. I have tweaked it a bit. I omit the first step of cooking the beans and adding all those ingredients. Skip to the second section to make the rice. Before putting a lid on to cook, add a can of drained and rinsed black beans. Give a quick stir (don't stir too much or the rice will become pasty) Cook for 30 minutes as directed.
