Cook the rice in a microwave with a ceramic plate on the top until rice has
absorbed water

Chop up capsicum, garlic, oregano, corriander and garlic

Drain the juice from tamato tin into a measuring cup and add enough water so the mixture becomes one cup

Place garlic in a hit pan with oil in a high-medium heat until browned

Add the beans, herbs, spices and capsicum and stir until mixed
