  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons butter and salt; stir in brown rice. Cover pot. Reduce heat to low. Simmer until rice is tender, about 45 minutes.
  2. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in a separate saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute red bell pepper until semi-soft, about 5 minutes. Add onion; saute until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in black beans, garlic, cumin, and pepper; cook and stir until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat.
  3. Pour vegetables into a large serving bowl; add the cooked rice and toss.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Vegetable broth can be substituted for the chicken broth.
  • If desired, use olive oil in place of butter in the recipe.
