Another week another challenge from /52weeks! This week the challenge was of the secret ingredient variety and we had to work with legumes. Legumes come in all sorts of varieties and are one of the primary components of our diets – excluding peanuts of course. I decided to go with kidney beans and tried to recreate a common dinner I had growing up, with a vegetarian twist. Dirty rice is extremely simple to make, and there are a few kits on store shelves to make it even easier. The first few times I made the dish I used one such kit until I figured out the right combination of spices and ingredients.
I decided to top mine with some sour cream but Greek yogurt would also work, or nothing at all. The best part is this is one of those dishes where the protein doesn’t really matter, making it one of those awesome cabinet emptying dishes. For an extra boost, and crunch, serve over kale or spinach!
