- 1 box of Zatarain's Reduced Sodium Red Beans and Rice (because the regular stuff is full of MSG)
- 1 can of diced tomatoes with chilis
- 1/4 cup of dried TVP (optional)
- a bit of salt and pepper if needed
- 3 1/4 cups of water (as directed on rice box)
- 1 tbsp butter or margarine
- Just follow the directions on the Zatarain's box but add the TVP in with the rice mixture.
- when about 3 - 5 minutes remain in cooking time stir in the can of tomatoes.
