Recipe by La Dilettante
After carefully perusing the other Cuban black bean dishes here, I decided this one is different enough to offer. Served over brown rice, with all the toppings, it's a power-packed veggie plate! For guests or family members who do eat meat, a good roast pork loin, grilled chicken, or lime-barbecued shrimp would round out the meal. A salad with a sweet citrus vinaigrette and sliced fresh oranges would make this a feast!
