    • Vegetarian Black Bean Soup Mix

      3 cups black beans, sorted
      3 tablespoons dehydrated onion
      3 tablespoons granulated garlic
      1 teaspoon crushed oregano
      2 teaspoon salt
      1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (do not omit)
      1 1/2 cups white rice.

      Put black beans into the bottom of a jar.

      Combine spices in a zip-type bag.

      Put rice in a zip-type bag.

      Attached the following instructions on a gift tag:

      Wash beans. Put in pot with contents of seasoning bag. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and cover beans with 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil and simmer until very well done (about 2 hours). Beans should be very soft. Add water as needed to keep beans from sticking. There should be some liquid left on beans when done.

      To cook rice, put 3 cups water and 1 teaspoon salt into a pot and when it boils, add rice. Lower heat, cover and steam for 20 minutes.

      Serve about 1/2 cup rice in bowl, and ladle beans over the top. Sprinkle with minced cilantro, finely chopped green onion, and a squeeze of lime juice.
