Engine 2 Diet: Black Beans & Brown Rice Extravaganza

Introduction

This is a mainstay dinner dish that is as basic as they come and oh, so good. Just like my morning bowl of cereal, Iíve been eating this meal for more than three decades. This is also a great meal to serve when youíre having extra guests over for dinner.
Serve with healthy chips or warm corn tortillas.

  • I get the feeling that Rip's idea of a "bunch" of cilantro is very different from what I found at my supermarket, as my dish looked like a green salad and nothing like the pictures I see online. Guess I'll adjust that for next time. - 4/28/13
