In a medium pan bring to boil rice, water, salt, & saffron. When it reaches the boil, reduce to low & simmer for about 15 to 20 minutes, covered.
1 can black beans (drained & rinsed)
1/4 finely chopped large onion
1 Tb. GFCF butter
In a small pan heat on medium olive oil, then add onions and cook until slightly translucent. Add garlic and cook for another minute. Then add black beans & about 1/4 cup or so of water and bring to slow boil. Cook covered for about 5 minutes, at the end add the butter and turn off the heat. add salt & pepper to taste.
