#SundaySupper Fried Rice and Black Beans

School is back in session! For everyone, this could mean a lot of different things. Hustle and bustling around the house, endless errands running between football and cheerleading, late night homework and of course, who has time to eat, right?! Never fear! Our AMAZING (as if I haven’t said that enough!) #SundaySupper group is here to help! We have created meals for you to make for your family in 30 minutes or less!

Mama’s Fried Rice and Black Beans are no exception. I timed this recipe. To the T. 18 minutes and some odd seconds. Okay, so I guess that’s not exact but pretty darn close. Few ingredients and a delicious robust flavor. I loved it. My family loved it. It is goooooood!


  • 1 Tbs coconut oil
  • 1 green bell pepper: chopped
  • 8.8 oz Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice (Which says ready in 90 seconds…yes baby, that’s quick!)
  • 1 (15 oz) can corn: drained
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans: drained and rinsed
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp sweet miso (soybean paste)

Recipe as follows:

  1. Heat coconut oil in a wok over medium to medium high heat.

2. Add onior and stir-fry for 3 minutes just until soft

Watch out! This baby is smokin! Smokin good that is!


3. Reduce heat and add: pepper, rice and chilli powder. Stir for 2 more minutes.

4. Add water and miso. Return to boil. Reduce and simmer for 10 minutes

5. Stir in beans and corn for five more minutes until heated through.

What? What’s that you say? I think I heard you say that you don’t have any miso or coconut oil in your cupboard…..


No problem! Use what you got! Skip on the miso and use olive oil. No biggy, next problem….no rice? What? No rice?! Yeah, that would be a problem 🙂

    I love the addition of sweet miso. I don’t care for instant rice, but what I like to do for a quick rice is make up a big batch and freeze portions in a ziplock bag. Then a quick zap in the microwave and it is done. That is my version of instant rice. 🙂
