Southern Beans and Rice

Here's What You Need:

Dried beans ($1 for a pound)
Onion, celery, carrot ($1 for one piece of each)
Green Pepper ($.50 for half)
Veggie stock ($.50 for roughly two cups)
Brown rice ($.50 for half pound)
Diced tomatoes ($1 for a can)
Sour cream or cheese ($.50 for a little topping)


Soak beans for at least a few hours, or better, overnight. Chop and saute veggies for a few minutes to get a little color on them before adding the beans. Add just enough water to cover the beans. Keep adding just enough water to keep them covered. Cook until beans are nearly done, but not yet soft. Add stock, tomatoes, and rice. Cook until rice and beans are finished. Add salt if needed, and top with cheese or sour cream.
