When your vegetable crisper is running low, no need to make a trip to the grocery store. Instead, look to your pantry for inspiration. This one pan skillet dinner is full of flavor with cajun spiced soy curls, rice, beans, tomatoes and corn. One skillet serves 6 to 8, so you'll have plenty to feed a crowd or additional meals for the week. Yum.
1 bag Butler soy curls
2 Tbsp cajun seasoning (recipe below)
1.5 cups long grain rice
2 1/4 cups 'no chicken' vegetable broth
15 oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
15 oz can fire roasted tomatoes
15 oz can corn, drained
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp cumin
Fresh cilantro, lime & avocado(optional)
1. In a bowl, soak soy curls in boiling water for 10 minutes. Drain, squeeze out liquid and pat dry(I use my salad spinner). Toss well in cajun seasoning.
2. Heat a large skillet(one with a lid), over medium high heat, add 2 Tbsp olive oil. Cook soy curls until well browned, approximately 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from skillet and set aside.
3. Add rice, broth, beans, tomatoes, corn, chili powder, paprika, and cumin to skillet. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover for 20-25 minutes until all of the liquid is absorbed.
4. Return soy curls to pan, stir, cover and continue to cook until heated though, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro, sliced avocado and lime wedges.
