I've found myself with an abundance of brown rice so I'm currently working my way through my bookmarked recipes (there are a lot).
I found a recipe entitled Carribean Red Beans and Rice and decided to give it a try.
I needed substantially more water; about 1 and 1/3 cup more. I didn't include the onion either as I had none. In my opinion, it needed more spice, more 'oomph', but all in all it was a pleasant dish. I was also really lazy and just put everything in the pot together and it turned out fine. It's a nice, simple dish that is yummy.
Total: $2.95, makes 2-3 serves.
