Vegan Friday: Red beans and rice

Somehow I failed to take step-by-step pictures of this, but I don’t think you’ll need them.

Red beans and rice

Two to three bell peppers (any color), diced
Three or four ribs of celery, chopped
Small onion, chopped
Olive oil
Two to three cloves of garlic, minced
Can of kidney beans, drained and rinsed
Can of tomatoes
File powder to taste (start with about 1 tbsp. and go from there)
Ground red pepper to taste
Bay leaf
1 c. water
1 c. Minute Rice

Combine vegetables and olive oil in a covered, microwave-safe dish and nuke until celery is tender. Combine vegetables with garlic, kidney beans, tomatoes, spices and water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove bay leaf, add rice and cover. Simmer over low heat until rice is tender. Serve immediately.
