Ludicrous-Speed Rice & Bean Bowl

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by chiclet

You will be eating this tasty bowl of Tex-Mex deliciousness before you even realize you've begun cooking it! OK, maybe it's not THAT fast, but it's pretty fast. And more importantly, it's yummy (and vegan). I usually add a squirt of lime juice at the end to make it extra nice.

This is the best Beans and Rice! I have been making this every week since I found this recipe. It is very fast and easy, and delicious, too! Instead of chilis, I put in 1/2 tsp or so of Sriracha hot sauce for some more kick. When I have an extra five minutes, I'll start with cooking a very ripe plantain, and when it's browned I'll go on with the rest of the recipe. Also, for more fresh veg, you can use fresh tomatoes as a topping and omit the salsa. Thank you for posting!
