I know we all live busy lives to be cooking every single meal. But when you are meal prepped and have a big batch of something already made, it makes living a healthy lifestyle that much more convenient. And this recipe definitely classifies as simple and convenient.

I don’t really share much about my personal life, but I’m also a dog trainer outside of this blogging world. This means I travel pretty often. I am also in the middle of remodeling my house, so I don’t exactly have a full kitchen yet.

 

When I first went plant-based, I heated up black beans, potatoes, and kale in the microwave for a week. I finally bought a hot plate to cook my meals and started cooking! This is one of my first recipes that I experimented with. Easy and convenient, remember? I’m also fan of a little spice, but if you’re not, forgo the chili powder. You can also serve this dish with a side of kale or wrap it up in a tortilla!

½ onion, diced
3 garlic cloves
juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon chili powder

Directions:

Add ½ cup of wild and grain rice to 1 ⅔ cup of water. Reduce the heat and cover for 30 minutes

While the rice is cooking, add a few tablespoons of water to a skillet and add the garlic & onions

Sauté for 3 minutes or until lightly brown

Next, add black beans, 1 cup of water, chili powder, salt, and pepper to the skillet and cook on medium heat for 10 minutes

Once the beans are soft, take your spatula and smush the beans enough to thicken the mixture

Then squeeze in the lime juice and serve with the rice!
