  1. Cook rice according to packet instructions then set aside
  2. Set a heavy bottomed pot on medium heat. Once hot, add avocado oil, onion, celery and bell pepper. Cook for about 2-3 minutes until the onions turn brown and slightly translucent. Add the garlic and seasonings and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add red and white beans and stir thoroughly to ensure every bean is covered in oil and seasonings. Then add the broth and bring to a gentle simmer. Once it is simmering, add the bay leaves, then lower the temperature and partially cover and cook, while stirring occasionally, for 1 1/2 hours. for the final 30 mins of cooking remove the lid so more of the broth can evaporate.
  4. Continue to cook until the majority of the broth has reduced and the beans have become like a stew. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.
  5. Spoon brown rice into bowls and ladle the red bean mix over the rice. Garnish with green onion, serve and enjoy!
