1/4 c. BBQ sauce
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 1/2 c. cooked brown rice
1/2 c. sliced mushrooms
1 can black bean soup
1 can. diced tomatoes

2 tsp. Cajun seasoning
Saute the onion and mushrooms in olive oil. Once they are tender add the tomatoes, okra, BBQ sauce, soup and seasonings. Stir well and allow the mixture to simmer on the stove for about 15 minutes or until heated through. At the very last minute, stir in the brown rice and heat for about five more minutes. Serve with corn bread or any other type of bread you like.

Didn't I tell you it was easy? Enjoy and don't blame me if you find yourself fighting with the hubby over the leftovers.
