After spending the weekend eating a pretty steady diet of carbs and sugar, I decided it was time to get back on our normal track for dinner last night! I wanted something simple, something healthy, maybe something with a little spice, so I came up with this delicious little concoction.
Mr. and Meatless’ Mexican Rice Bowl
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup water
1 cup brown rice
1 can black beans, rinsed
1 cup frozen corn
1 tomato, chopped (or a handful of cherry tomatoes)
1 avocado, chopped
1 handful of cilantro, chopped
sour cream (or greek yogurt) and salsa and shredded cheese to taste (optional)
Combine water and broth in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Add rice. Simmer covered until liquid is almost absorbed, 12-15 minutes. Add black beans and corn and continue to simmer covered for another 5 minutes or until beans and corn are warm.
Divide rice mixture between 4 bowls (or two bowls and two containers for lunch the next day, like we did). Top with avocado, tomato, cilantro, sour cream and salsa. Mix and enjoy!
Like I said, totally simple, but really delicious and satisfying and perfect for a weeknight when all you want to do is order Mexican takeout.
