SALSA BROWN RICE & BLACK BEAN SALAD BOWL
My fave healthy salad w/ brown rice, black beans and salsa
This is my current favorite salad bowl combined with my current favorite thing to put on everything – salsa!
My sister came to visit me in LA a few weeks ago and she got me hooked on salsa (cause she’s obsessed with it). Since then, I’ve been putting salsa on literally anything I can eat it on – and so I thought why not have it in my fave salad bowl?
This recipe is super easy to make, healthy, gluten-free, dairy free and plant-based – and it contains healthy fats, good whole carbs, and some protein too.
Hope you love it as much as I do!
PS. Make sure you check out my “What I eat in a day” video below where I made this for lunch.
-1 cup cooked brown or sprouted rice
-1/2 cup cooked black beans
-1/2 small-medium avocado
-2 to 4 Tablespoons salsa
-1 cup chopped cucumber
-1 medium tomato
-1/2 to 1 cup shredded raw broccoli or carrot (or a mix of both)
-handful baby spinach
-a squeeze of lime or lemon juice
-salt and pepper
-1 Tablespoon coconut aminos/ soy sauce (optional)
-I start by adding 1 cup of cooked sprouted rice or brown rice to a bowl
-Then I add 1/2 cup of cooked black beans bowl with some chopped cucumber (about 1 cup), a medium sized tomato (chopped up) and 1/2 an avocado
-I also add some baby spinach to my salad bowl with some shredded broccoli and carrot mix Ive been buying (you can easily shred your broccoli at home, it’s the best way to add broccoli to a salad)
-I always squeeze some lime or lemon juice over my salads to bring out the flavors with salt and pepper, and I love to use coconut aminos (its like a healthy soy sauce alternative – I use a Tablespoon over the rice)
-And the ingredient of the moment (my new friend salsa – I use a store bought one, it’s just a cheap one but there’s no added sugar in it)
-You can add as much of that as you want, I usually start by adding like 2 Tablespoons and then go back for another 2 tablespoons
-That’s it, serve fresh and enjoy!
