  1. Heat olive oil in a nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add fennel, onion, water, and garlic; cook and stir until onion starts to soften, about 5 minutes. Stir in rice until coated with oil and lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Stir 1 cup broth into the saucepan; cook until rice absorbs broth, about 5 minutes. Add broth a ladleful at time, stirring until rice is tender and creamy, 15 to 20 minutes in all. Stir in black beans; cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • You may need more vegetable stock. The brown rice can take a lot of fluid and time to soften up.

Brown rice takes forever to soften. I parboiled mine for 20 minutes and allowed to let sit for an additonal 15 before sauteing my veggies. worked like a charm.
