Ingredients
  • ¾ C uncooked brown rice
  • 1 15oz can black beans
  • 1 tbsp all natural taco seasoning (or more or less, depending on what you love)
  • ½ C grape tomatoes, quartered
  • ½ tbsp chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp cilantro, torn plus more for topping
  • juice from 1 lime (about 2 tbsp)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Shredded cheddar cheese (use your desired amount)
  • Toppings that you love - sour cream, jalapenos, hot sauce
Instructions
  1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker or stove top according to directions
  2. Meanwhile, drain the beans, reserving a little of the juices from the can. Add the beans and reserved juices to a medium sauce pan and heat over medium heat. Mix in taco seasoning.
  3. Make the salsa. Mix together the tomatoes, lime juice, salt, pepper, garlic, onions and 1 tbsp cilantro.
  4. By now, the rice should be done. Remove from the rice cooker and place into two bowls. Divide everything else up between the bowls, add desired toppings and enjoy.
Notes
If you're eating this solo, as I did, just put the beans, rice and cheese in a storage container. Heat and top with desired topping when ready to eat. If you're going to take it to work for lunch like I did, I just packed my toppings in little storage containers for easy transportation.
