Store: Leftovers can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 5 days in a covered container. For longer storage, store in the freezer for up to 2 – 3 months using a freezer-safe container.
Brown Rice with Instant Pot: If using 1 1/2 cups brown rice, add 2 1/2 cups of water. Cook on HIGH pressure for 22 minutes.
Quinoa with Instant Pot: If using 1 1/2 cups of quinoa, add 2 1/2 cups of water. Cook on HIGH pressure for 3 minutes.
Add more texture and more protein. Adding an 8 oz block of crumbled tempeh along with the beans is a great way to change it up.
Add more spices. As is, the spice level is pretty kid-friendly, but feel free to add more.
Speed up the recipe. Make this recipe move along quicker by skipping the saute in both cooking methods. It’ll still be delicious!
