Country Beans and Rice

Country Beans & Rice

1 cup rice
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced, about 2 teaspoons
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon Poultry Seasoning
2 bouillon cubes
2-1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 cans beans, any kind you feel like (I use white)

Heat the oil in a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped vegetables, red pepper and Poultry Seasoning. Fry the veggies until they are somewhat tender, about 5 minutes.
Add the rice. Fry the rice until it's white and toasty, about 2 or 3 minutes.
Add the water, bouillon cubes, soy sauce and beans. Bring the mixture to a boil.
Reduce the heat and cover with a tightly fitting lid. Simmer for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until the rice is tender and has absorbed most of the water.
