Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans

I’m using a boil-in-a-bag quick cooking brown rice for this dish. Truth be told I wasn’t sure about the taste of a quick cooking brown rice. The rice has a slightly nutty flavor. It’s really delicious.  There are some really great products available in local grocery stores today.  I’m okay with taking advantage of semi-homemade dishes.  It definitely allows for more TV time.

 

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8-10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
Yields: 6 servings

Ingredients:
2 bags of boil-in-a-bag brown rice (or white rice if you prefer)
1 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 bowl.  Add in the rinsed and drained black beans, lime zest, chopped cilantro leaves, sliced green onions, Kosher salt, and black pepper. Finally toss all the ingredients together.
