Fo the Rice

  • 110 grams rice
  • 250 ml water
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

Spicy Black Beans

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil extra virgin
  • ¼ red onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 100 grams cooked or canned black beans, rinsed

For the Bowls

  • 150 grams cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 bell pepper or 3 mini peppers sliced
  • 2 small handfuls rucola or lettuce
  • 40 grams pickled onions
  • ½ fresh lime
  • Small handful cilantro or parsley


  • Add the rice, water, and salt to a medium pot. Bring to a boil on high heat, then reduce to low-medium and simmer, covered, for 15-20* minutes or until the water is fully absorbed.
  • While the rice is cooking, prepare the beans. In a large pan, heat the oil over medium. Add the onions and sauté for 4-5 minutes, or until softened and translucent. 
  • Stir in the garlic, cumin, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Cook for another minute before adding the beans and stirring to mix.
  • Lower the heat and cook for a couple more minutes to heat the beans. Reduce the heat to low or place a lid on the pan to keep warm while you finish the other elements.
  • Once the rice is finished, divide it between two bowls. Top with half the black beans, tomatoes, peppers, and greens. Add some pickled onions, a squeeze of lime, and cilantro to each bowl, and serve immediately.


* This timing is for soaked brown rice or dry white rice. Otherwise cook according to package instructions.
