This is a light and healthy salad or side dish. If you can't find black beans, kidney beans work equally well.
Altered ingredient amounts. I really enjoyed this recipe. However, I didn't see the point in all that liquid to cook the rice. I think a ratio of 1 part rice 2 part liquid is just fine. I reduced the amount of lemon juice. Tommorrow, I will add fresh corriander to it and see how that is. - 08 Oct 2008
So easy and tasty, I am not a fan of brown rice, but this was good, will make again and again. - 05 Apr 2013
Used different ingredients. This is tasty, nutritious, and filling - the food trifecta in my book. I left out the chillies since I don't care for that taste and added a couple of stalks of celery to the onion saute. I also found that it didn't need salt. It was delicious as-is. - 08 Oct 2008
