    Cookgirl's Note:

    Another variation on the medieval Spanish classic of the black bean and white rice hot dish. A delicious main dish but it also has an interesting historical significance. This is from the Beans and Grains' cookbook by James McNair. Can be served as a main or side dish.

      This is a delicious and easy way to make rice and beans. I added the finely chopped onions to the dressing and let them 'marinate' for a while before adding them to the rice and beans. As suggested, I didn't use the whole amount of olive oil. I will definately make this again! Made for zwt5

      I scaled this down for 3 servings and my 4 yo son and I really enjoyed it. I used a bit less garlic and lime juice, because it was handy. Thank you for posting! Made for ZWT 5.

      I never knew rice and beans could be sooooo delicious! I made this just as written (cutting the oil back to 1/2 cup), and wouldn't change a thing! The flavors are amazing. I enjoyed this warm and at room temperature. I mixed some of the chopped cilantro right into the dressing as well as saving some for garnish. Thanx for posting this. I'll be making this a lot.
