Vegan MoFo: Back to Basics

Vegan food has come a long way since the term "vegan" was born in 1944. Hell, it's even come a long way since my first vegetarian meet-up (I was 8. I remember being served a sort of seaweed-shake-thing that tasted quite a bit like Maalox). Still, you gotta love the classics. I enjoy a vegan cupcake as much as the next girl, but I love, love, love rice and beans.

Pictured here is wild rice and kidney beans, seasoned with turmeric, chili powder, and lime juice. As you can see, I had a lot of broccoli to use, as well as green pepper, shiitake mushrooms, and avocado as a garnish. This was good and I would make it again, but I wanna know about your rice and beans--how do you do it?
