Dried beans are inexpensive and a convenient choice for economical meals. They also lend themselves well to slow cooking because, unlike on the cooktop, there is no risk of burning during the long simmering period. This meatless entrée reheats well the next day for lunch. Store leftover bean mixture and rice in separate containers in the refrigerator.
