Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans

I’m using a boil-in-a-bag quick-cooking brown rice for my Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure about the taste of a quick cooking brown rice. The flavor of the rice is slightly nutty, really delicious. Today you can find a variety of really great products available at your local grocery store. I’m okay with the grocery store working as my “acting” sous chef.  It definitely allows for more TV time.

Cilanto-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 to 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Yields: 6 servings
Equipment: 3-quart saucepot, large serving bowl, chef’s knife

Ingredients:
2 bags of boil-in-a-bag brown rice (or white rice if you prefer)
1 15-ounce can of low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
1 teaspoon of Kosher salt
1/2  teaspoon of freshly cracked black pepper
1/4 cup of chopped cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons of lime zest
1/4 cup of sliced green onions

Directions:
Boil the rice according to the directions on the back of the box. Let the excess water in the “cooking bags” drain completely before transferring the rice to a large mixing bowl. Add the drained and rinsed black beans, lime zest, chopped cilantro leaves, sliced green onions, Kosher salt, and black pepper. Finally, toss all the ingredients together.

Serve my Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans warm or at room temperature.
