Combine 3 Cups of water with 1 tsp salt & 1 ½ tsp olive oil in a medium saucepan. Bring the water to a boil, and stir in the rice. Cover the saucepan & reduce heat to low. Cook for 40-50 minutes or according to package directions. (Some brown rices take longer to cook than others).
Heat 1 ½ Tbsp of olive oil in a large sauce over medium heat. Saute onion, green/red pepper, & garlic until softened. (~5 minutes) Add beans, broth, vinegar, bay leaves, pepper, cumin & 1 tsp salt. Cover the saucepan & bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low & simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the bay leaves. Serve over rice with scallions & a few dashes of hot sauce.
