1 cup onions -- chopped
3 cloves garlic
2 medium tomatoes -- chopped
1 pound beans -- canned
4 cups water
2 cups quick brown rice -- quinoa, or couscous

Preparation / Directions:

Saute onions and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add tomatoes, beans, water and grain. Season with herbs and spices of your choice. Cook until the grain is tender. Serve with tossed salad. (I would cut back on the beans to make it count as 1 starch/bread) (I also would use a combination of couscous and quinoa and even add any free vegetables. This would be great to make ahead and take to work in the summer time.)
