We're trying to watch our cholesterol by eating a few vegetarian meals each week. The first time I served this I didn't call it "vegetarian" which is probably by my husband agreed to try it. He loved it and went back for seconds.

We've talked about making it with brown rice and just haven't gotten around to it yet. If you try it that way please be sure to let me know how it comes out.

How to Make More than just rice


  1. Prepare the rice according to directions on the package and have it hot (at least warm) as you start to assemble the rest of the dish.
  2. Roughly chop and saute the onion in the butter/margarine until it's just barely tender. Do not brown.
  3. Put all of the rice into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Layer the ingredients starting with the onion, then the tomatoes (put a little water in the can and get out all the juice if you'd like), black beans and lastly the cheese.
  4. Put the casserole into a 350 degree oven and let it bake for about 20 minutes. The cheese will melt (but not brown). Serve immediately.
