Spicy Red Beans and Rice

I absolutely LOVE Red Beans and Rice, when you mix in some beef smoked sausage, I am in heaven. But with the new year freshly born, I am currently going meatless, just to try it out. This was awesome last night and the family eating meatloaf in front of me had no impact at all!

1 tsp vegetable oil
1 onion chopped
5 cloves of garlic, minced
2 carrots, diced small
1 bell pepper, diced small
2 cups fat free beef stock
2 cups water
2 cups uncooked brown rice
3 cups of cooked red beans
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 tbs. red pepper flakes

In an extra large skillet, heat oil and saute vegetables until the onions are translucent. Add in beef stock, slowly, then the water and seasonings. Add in the rice and the beans and simmer covered, for 1 hour.  Your looking at about 220 calories for 1 and a half cups.
