I saw this post for The Professor’s Black Beans and Rice and had to try it. I’ve only had BBR once and that was from a Zatarain’s box that was surprisingly tasty, considering the beans were space food (dehydrated). Anyway, I’m trying to cook more different stuff and this looked like a good place to start.
I had trouble cutting up the onion. In retrospect, I should have used the food processor but I was in a hurry and didn’t feel like figuring out how to chop an onion in the processor. I tried to dice it as much as I could but my eyes were watering quite a bit and I couldn’t see (and both kids were hanging right around where I was cutting).
I used a bit more rice than the recipe called for, probably 2.5 cups after I held some out for the kids (they like rice with butter and sugar). I think next time I won’t use any onion at all and see how it turns out.
