Zuccini, Black Bean, and Green Pepper Skillet

Hello all, Lizzie here with another simple recipe that can be made with basic ingredients, and it's delicious! My original inspiration was from this recipe on ReadySetEat, however their recipe did not include onions, and I cannot allow that. (Ask anyone who's eaten my cooking a few times; they'll tell you I'm addicted to onions.) The lack of onions isn't the only change to my rendition of this recipe, so read on to find out how to make it!

You will need...
1 1/2 cups uncooked rice
3 cups water
1 Tbs. olive oil
1/2 of a zuccini, diced
1 fresh tomato, diced
1 onion, sliced
1 green pepper, diced
1 Tbs. garlic
1 can black beans
Cheese to garnish

1. Cook your rice. Follow the instructions on the packaging and you can't go wrong. While your rice cooks...

2. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat. Once heated, throw in the green pepper, zuccini, onion, black beans, and garlic. Let cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Add tomato. Stir for another 3 minutes and then take off the heat.

4. Serve! Put a serving of rice and a serving of your veggies on your plate and top with cheese. It's also good with some salsa!

And there you have it! Done in 10 minutes. My favorite part about this recipe is that it's a sneaky way to eat vegetables. Sometimes it's hard to fit the healthy stuff in when you're a busy college student who has little time to cook and no money to buy a wide variety of foods. Not to mention cereal tastes better than a lot of vegetables. But not so with this recipe! (You can't even taste the zuccini, by the way; it just adds a fun crunch to your meal.)

I hope you all enjoy! Tomorrow I hope to share a post on what to do with any leftover onion or green pepper you didn't throw into the skillet for this reicpe! Have a great day, everyone!
