Simple supper far that can be made ahead and frozen, so easy!
Cook the Dainty Brown Rice in a rice cooker with 1 cup of water
While the rice is cooking, heat a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil. When hot, add the red onion, bell pepper, celery & garlic. Sauté until softened, about 5 minutes.
Add the chili powder, oregano and cumin. Stir in and allow to cook for 1 minute or until aromatic.
Add in the crushed tomatoes and beans. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes over medium heat. Season with salt and pepper.
To serve immediately - either add in the rice and allow to simmer for 5 minutes with the chili or serve as an accompaniment. Garnish as desired. NOTE: If you plan on freezing, mix the rice with the chili, allow to cool completely before freezing.
