Italian Style Rice and Bean Medley with Wine

Saturday, November 23, 2013
Well beans and rice no matter what you put in it taste great together. I don't think anyone can make a bad combination of spices. It all what you like. I love the wine, butter, garlic and olive oil. It's amazing how many beans there really are. If your a bean lover, you just hit the jackpot!


2 cups cooked 15 beans (1 Bag with 15 bean any flavored variety bean mix, boiled to package instructions and drained found in the bean section of your supermarket ) or use the crockpot overnight to cook them
2 cups long grain rice cooked to package instructions drained (brown and yellow rice work great also)
4 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon dried basil, parsley, oregano, thyme, rosemary
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
pinch cayenne pepper

Note: if the rice is leftover use more chicken broth to moisten before reheating)

In a large fry pan, melt butter, add olive oil, sauté garlic around 1 minute. Add a pinch cayenne if using. Combine the boiled rice and sauté in the butter for around 2 minutes. Add around 2 cups or more of beans and wine with the rest of the spices. Simmer around 3 minutes until some of the wine is absorbed.
