Refried Beans and Yellow Rice

with 4 comments


This simple dinner hails, yet again, from Viva Vegan! For the Yellow Rice, you get to make annatto oil, aka achiote oil. I found a bag of achiote/annatto seeds for 79 cents at an Asian grocery, which made it even more fun to make bright orange cooking oil. (Such (for me) novelty for so little money!) Then, refried beans from the recipe in the book– I used canned pintos. To top it off, I roasted some broccoli, which I should do more often, because it was delicious.

  2. oh, that looks so good! I’ve never made roasted broccoli, but it sounds like a great compliment to the Viva dinner. I have Viva, but I haven’t explored it much… so much carby carbs! I’ll have to keep broccoli in mind as a balancing agent.

    • True! Look into the soups and stews and salads and “asado” chapter– not quite as much corn and rice.
