Spicy Rice and Bean Salad

1 cup of basmati rice uncooked
1 Tbsp. oil of your choice
1/2 cup sweet chopped onion
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp mustard seeds (optional)
1 garlic clove, minced
1 green onion, chopped
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
3 Tbsp. Tamari (organic soy sauce)
1 cup frozen peas
1 cup frozen corn
2 medium carrots, peeled and grated
1 Tbsp Earth Balance butter

Directions- cook the Basmati rice according to the package directions. I cooked the rice the night before to save on time. Chop all your vegetables, IN a large skillet heat the oil over medium heat saute the onion. Add spices, garlic and green onion and saute on low until spices begin to bubble slightly. Add the Tamari sauce and black beans, stir well and cook for about 5 min.  Add frozen peas, carrots and frozen corn, stir well.  Heat on low for about 5 more min. Stir in the cooked and drained rice and butter.
Makes 6 cups - Enjoy!!
