I make this a lot and in lots of different ways. It is a great staple and can either be made vegan or non-vegan, when used with actual meat or bone broth.
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients except bacon in ungreased 2 quart casserole. Cover and bake until liquid is absorbed, 60-65 minutes.
Very high in fiber, low sodium, low calorie, and tastes good!
Saute onions in olive oil 5 minutes. Add beans and saute 3 minutes more. Add water and rice and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until rice is done. . .
