Instructions: Black beans & saffron rice - this is a simple, yet tasty, Cuban dinner. Choose a saffron rice mix, if you can find one. Mahatma is a particularly good vegan brand; watch out for mixes that arent vegetarian (Vigo, for example, uses chicken broth in their mix). Otherwise, Spanish rice works just as well. Cook rice according to package directions. Meanwhile, gently heat 1-2 cans of black beans. Spice with cumin, cayenne pepper, hot sauce, and/or chopped fresh cilantro. Serve beans over rice and top with red or green salsa. Preparation time = about 20 minutes
