what the hell does a vegan eat!?

so this recipe is the greatest thing ever. my steak loving husband is in love with this dish...he doesn't even have to add a meat. it is so satisfying and warm and yummy!!!! i got this from the cook book vegan yum yum. i made a few tweeks, but it's pretty much the same recipe. please make this, you are going to friggin' love it.
get your fave mixtures of italian herbs. i like thyme, basil, and tarragon. 
add a tablespoon of olive oil and 1/4 cup of pine nuts and a few teaspoons of each herb. cook until the pine nuts are light brown. 
add 1 can of strained and rinsed cannellini beans. stir gently, so you don't break the beans. after heated through add 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. 
add a crap ton of baby spinach. i usually use an entire bag. it wilts down soooooo much. 
i cook up 1 cup of brown rice in 1 3/4 cups salted water. add cooked rice on top of spinach. it will help the spinach wilt. 
once it's all cooked, gently mix and add the zest of one lemon. 
add 2 seeded and chopped roma tomatoes. heat through.
serve with a lemon wedge.

dude, you will love this. it sounds so simple, but it comes out perfect every time and is really super tasty. we vegans are smart folks.
