In the video Juarez Goncalves de Azevedo who works as a Master Chef at the Crowne Plaza in Gurgaon, Brazil, shows us how to make black bean rice. You start with butter and bay leaves over the heat, then adding chopped onion and tomato and getting it to soften. Once that is done you add the black beans (soaked) and mix it all together. Then comes parsley, salt and long grain rice. The rice absorbs all the flavors. Water is added and the whole thing is cooked for 15 minutes. After that time it should be tender and ready to serve.
