David Dawson's Kale and Black Beans on Rice

"I cooked some black beans last night for a lunch burrito today...and made sure there was enough left over for this. I hadn't flavored the beans while cooking yesterday. After cooling and pouring off all the water, except just barely enough to cover them, I added garlic powder, onion powder, olive oil, balsamic and oregano. Today, after they'd been marinating for a while, they were so delicious that I could have had them over some white rice and called that dinner. Instead..."

1 small yellow onion cut in half and then sliced
4 button mushrooms sliced thick
4 med leaves of kale

I sauteed the onions and then added the mushrooms.

After washing the kale I cut the stems out then roughly cut them into 2 inch pieces and added that to the pan.

Added 6 heaping tablespoons of the leftover black beans and then about 1 cup of boiling water to make a nice sauce.

Added some crushed red pepper just to give it a bit more flavor then ignored it while plating the rice.

Scooped some left over white rice onto some plates and heated it in the microwave.

I served the kale and black beans over the reheated rice and arranged it all neat to impress [my wife].

Hope you can find some inspiration in it!
