I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Red beans and rice

Red beans and rice by John Spottiswood

I've adapted this recipe from a number that I have used in the past. You can deviate from this and it is still delicious!

Tomato Rice Pilaf

Tomato Rice Pilaf by Mary Joseph

This originated as a Lebanese dish that my mom always used to make, I tweaked it a bit adding tomatoes and mint and leaving out the meat that it called for. If you're a cheese lover this would be amazing with crumbled French Feta mixed in.

I make this all the time for a quick and easy side dish. Alternately, this can be a main dish by adding 1 lb. of chicken, beef, or pork. my daughter Genesis loves it and enjoys this recipe as her main dish with no meat added. I feel great knowing my children can be satisfied with a meatless meal and still be happy!
