black bean, rice & veggies bowl

a hearty dish made from random things in my pantry. it turned into a hodge-podge meal that's part mexican, part veggie medley. i used westpac asparagus stir fry veggies. fresh would be better, of course, but frozen is what i had.

  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked
  • 1/8 cup cilantro, finely minced
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1/2 bag of frozen veggies (about 6oz)
  • 1 cup black beans, cooked
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon cumin powder
  • 1/3-1/2 cup salsa
cook rice, beans and frozen veggies. then mix all ingredients except salsa in a large bowl. add salsa last, adding in enough to coat the ingredients like a dressing.

make about 3 or 4 medium-size bowls.

this looks yummy! i'm all about frozen veggies right now, too... they're cheaper in the winter time. by the way, i thought about you last night because i almost put kraut on my sausage and pepper sammie. almost. i got scared though. i think it would have been really good though, and am annoyed at my scaredykittiness.

You're doing awesome on the throwing everything together and mad scientist type thing. I mean I make explosions doing that, but you make masterpieces! Tasty greeting, Missy :)
