End-of-the-Month Beans and Rice

When funds dwindle, I rate our favorite recipes in order of how much the ingredients cost. This is a recent discovery that will come in very handy for lean months.

1 T olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
2 T hot curry powder
1/2 lb smoked sausage, sliced thin
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 c chicken or vegetable broth
1 T white wine vinegar

Heat oil and sauté onion and garlic over medium high heat for 3 minutes. Add curry and stir constantly for 30 seconds to keep powder from burning, then add sliced sausage. After sausage is lightly browned, add broth and beans. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until beans are heated through. Take pan off heat and stir in vinegar. Serve over hot rice.
