Barbecue Bean Sloppy Joes

Servings: 6-8

1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup vegetable broth
3 cups cooked brown rice
2 15 ounce cans pinto beans, undrained
¾ cup fat-free barbecue sauce
1 ½ tablespoons chili powder
whole wheat buns

Place the onion and bell pepper in a non-stick pan with the vegetable broth. Cook, stirring occasionally until vegetables soften slightly, about 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients (except the buns) and cook for about 12 minutes, until well heated.

Hints: There are many delicious barbecue sauces on the market shelves these days. Choose one without oil and preferably without high fructose corn syrup. Use another kind of bean to vary the recipe, or maybe one can each of pinto and black or white. There are several manufacturers that make frozen cooked whole grain brown rice that reheats in the microwave in 3 minutes. Look for these items in the frozen food department.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
