salt & pepper

2 cups rice

1. Soften beans (soak first) with garlic.

2. Boil until tender and whole, adding salt meat (previously boiled to soften) when almost tender.

3. Add the milk, onion and seasonings.

4. Wash rice, then add to the beans.

5. Cook over gentle heat until liquid is absorbed.

7. Stir gently with a fork, and add a little water from time to time until rice is cooked.

Serve hot with a meat dish.

(Some favorite meat dishes with rice and beans are: stuffed baked chicken, stew chicken, stew fish, fried

fish or meat balls).
