 Ingredients

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

 Instructions

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.
