Smoked Sausage & White Bean Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

Frugal Hausfrau

It could very well be that I’m in denial! I am astonished each time it snows! I do live in Minnesota, but really? Snow twice last week and again the other day. But snow to me = soup, so soup it is. Again. 🙂

Brown Rice and Black Beans with Chile-Ginger Salsa

Heathers' Fresh Cooking

I don’t make a lot of vegetarian dishes.  I was raised a meat and potatoes girl and I don’t see that changing soon.  However, this one caught my eye and I am glad it did.   I have made a few changes from the original recipe to suit our tastes and what could be found in the market.  When you make this, don’t skip the salsa part!  You only need a little dab, but without it, this would be just another bland bowl of rice and beans.

Start to finish, this will be done in about the time it takes to cook the rice.  This recipe makes a nice dinner for 2, with some rice left over.   It can easily be doubled.
