What's up Wednesday--Black beans and rice

 I am not a fancy side dish person--except for maybe on holidays--Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, etc.  Most of the time it is just fresh fruit and frozen or fresh veggies.  But this side dish is very easy, and my whole family loves it, so I make it pretty often--black beans and rice. Yum!  You basically just cook rice and add the black beans at the end with some spices.  Easy, so enjoy!
Black Beans and Rice
1 tsp olive oil
1 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup uncooked white rice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp ground cumin
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed

In a pot over medium high heat, heat the oil.  Add in the onion and garlic and saute for about 4 minutes.  Add the rice and saute for 2 more minutes.

Add the broth, bring to a boil, cover and lower heat to low and cook for 20 minutes.  Add the cumin and black beans, warm and serve.
