Simply Delicious Black Bean & Brown Rice Salad

This is such an easy Vegan, Plant-based recipe to throw together.  Works great for an easy lunch, a snack, or to bring along to a pot-luck.  (I actually eat this for breakfast…)  I’ve provided the ingredients I usually use, but you can add your own ideas too.  Peppers, olives, various types of rice (stick with brown and wild rice) and different types of beans all work well!

Just make sure to keep to softer veggies (ie: not carrot chunks) to make eating more enjoyable! 


2-3 cups of cooked brown rice (1 cup uncooked)
1 cup(ish) of black beans (one can, rinsed well)
1 cup diced tomatoes (or more, depending on how much you love tomatoes!)
1/2-3/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Juice of one lime
1/4 cup of sugar-free salsa

Make It:

1. Cook rice normally, allow to cool completely.
2. Rinse black beans and toss with diced tomatoes, green onions, cilantro.
3. Add cooled rice, lime juice and salsa and toss all ingredients until well mixed.
4. Add pepper to taste and ENJOY!

*Add a few slices of Avocado to your salad for added flavor, color, and some healthy fats!  (Don’t pre-mix the Avocado unless you are eating all the salad right away… the Avocado will go brown.)

This is my favorite go-to salad for any meal of the day!
