A Healthy Taste of Mexico
4 cups cooked organic brown rice
1 large organic bell pepper, chopped (color of choice)
1/2 organic seedless cucumber, chopped
1 cup organic chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup organic chopped red onion
1 can organic black beans or kidney beans
1 bunch organic fresh chopped cilantro
1 organic ripe avocado chopped
Fresh lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and soak brown rice. Cook as directed ( I use vegetable broth w/ cumin, paprika, and garlic powder for added flavor instead of water). Chop all fresh ingredients in bite sized pieces and place on top of rice. Add beans, avocado and cilantro with a squeeze of lime juice. For added flavor and fun, you can add regular or vegan shredded cheese, sour cream and hot sauce.
