3/4 cup brown rice
1 1/2 cups water
1 (15.5oz) can black beans (drained and rinsed)
1/4 cup salsa
1/4 cup water
1 T. chopped cilantro
For the rice: Add brown rice and water to a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil and lower heat to warm, cover, and cook for 35-40 minutes or until tender. If you have a rice cooker, you can use this as well!
For the beans: In a second medium sauce pan, heat salsa, 1/4 cup water, and black beans. Bring to a simmer and lower heat. Cook on low for 10 minutes, and stir in cilantro.
Serve beans over rice and enjoy!
**Pro tip: ALWAYS drain and rinse canned beans before using them in recipes. This will reduce sodium and help you create healthy and satisfying dishes
