Delicious Mexican Dinner

Image

Dinner tonight was fabulous!  I soaked some black bean this morning.  This afternoon I rinsed them, covered them with new water, and put in one chopped onion, and one chopped garlic clove.  After the water started boiling, I added about 1 tsp. ground cumin.  They had to cook on medium heat for about 1 1/2 hours.  DELICIOUS!  For the rice, I chopped 1/2 onion, 1 large jalapeno, and a good size handful of fresh cilantro.  I made sure these were chopped up nicely.  Then I measured one cup of vegetable broth, and 1 1/2 cups of water.  I put in one cup of brown rice.  I cooked it like normal rice.  I brought it to boil, then placed a lid on it and turned down the heat to low.  I let it simmer for about 45 minutes.  Just divine!  We put the rice and beans over a bed of lettuce, then put tomatoes and avocados on top.  We garnished it with salsa and some cilantro/lime vinegrette fat free dressing.  SOOOOOO GOOD!!
