Mexican food is my absolute favourite! It’s fairly simple but oh so delicious. Lately I’ve found myself lacking variety at lunch time and just eating sandwiches due to laziness. This is a great little recipe, it’s super easy to put together but it’s very filling and it’s good for you!
You can’t find black beans at supermarkets in Australia and I searched high and low for them until I finally found them at my local Psarakos. Have a look in your local Mediterranean grocer otherwise you can sub in any other bean you like.
I’ve also used white rice, I would’ve preferred brown rice but I didn’t have any left at home.
1/2 cup cooked rice
1/2 cup baby spinach leaves
1/4 cup salsa (half tomato, 1/4 red onion, salt, pepper, lime juice, coriander)
1/2 can black beans
1/4 can corn
1 large mushroom
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon coriander seeds powder
Start with preparing the salsa so the flavours have time to develop. Drain the beans and set aside
Dice the mushroom into small cubes and sauté with a bit of oil, once the mushrooms are golden add the beans and corn. Salt to taste and add the spices. Set aside
Place the rice in a bowl to one side and the spinach leaves to the other. Top with the salsa, bean mix and avocado.
