Brown Rice and Black Beans

What you need: 

4 cups brown rice
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons cumin
3 tablespoons cajun seasoning
1 can black beans
1 block firm tofu
bag of frozen edamames
fresh ground black pepper to taste
kosher salt to taste
cilantro (optional)

What you do: 

Cook rice accordingly. While rice is cooking, put olive oil in a skillet or wok with the cumin and cajun seasoning.
After the oil heats up, add tofu (after its been pressed, drained and cubed). Stir around until the tofu has absorbed the oil and seasonings and has turned the color of the seasonings.
Add one can of black beans and stir until heated. Next add frozen edamames until cooked through. Add the rice and stir until heated and until it absorbs the spices and oil. This is when you can add salt and pepper to taste.
Put in a bowl, top with some cilantro and enjoy.
