Baja Black Beans and Rice

Some of you may know the combination of beans and rice as a crucial part of dozens of indigenous cuisines. Others may know it as the cheap, filling way you managed not to starve to death in college. Regardless, when done right, it’s a healthy vegan source of complete protein guaranteed to break through hunger without breaking the bank.

  • 3/4 cup cooked brown rice (or quinoa if you’re feeling fancy)

  • 1/2 cup canned diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbsp. crumbled fresh cheese (queso fresco)
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  1. Combine rice, black beans, diced tomatoes, chili powder, and cumin in medium saucepan; mix well.
  2. Cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until heated through.
  3. Serve hot, sprinkled with cheese and cilantro (if desired).
