Rice and Beans

Here you will find recipes using rice and beans for side dishes, main dishes, salads and more. This recipe collection will continue to grow as I discover more delicious recipes that are made using rice and beans. This page includes
recipes for beans from the legume family as well as the vegetable family in case you are searching for either of these bean types. Beans are often used in recipes for soup, salads, casseroles, appetizers, side dishes and more. Beans are high in fiber, protein, complex carbohydrates, folate and iron and can often be used in place of meat.

Rice is a wonderfully versatile grain, enjoyed by cultures all over the world. Many types of rice can be used with food preparation, such as brown, wild, basmati and jasmin to name a few. Like beans, rice can be used in recipes for soup, salads, casseroles, appetizers, side dishes, as well as desserts, or as a side dish for most any main course. It can also be used as a base for a variety of stir-fry dishes or other dishes.
