Yellow Rice with Black Beans and Veggies

Turmeric and cumin (plus other seasonings) give yellow rice so much flavor! When making this dish, saute the diced veggies while the rice is cooking, and then add a can of black beans. You can use any combo of diced veggies that you have on hand. Couldn’t be easier… and it’s full of protein and healthy veggies!
