UMass Amherst - between '90-'94 - People's Market: I used to get a plate of rice and beans for lunch almost every day for a couple of years from People's and I am CRAVING that exact dish hardcore. I remember brown rice, red wine vinegar as a condiment - but what type of beans and what was in them, if anything? IIRC, it was like $1.00.

God, I can just taste it and want this SO BADLY. It was totally bland, but so yummy and filling.
I think it might have been black beans, but is it possible they were cooked with NO spices? Were they lentils? You could get a big ass paper plate with scoops of each for like a buck, and it was awesome, if very boring.
Anyone else go to UMass back in the day, or work at People's, and know what the secret bean recipe was?
