Black Beans ‘n Rice

I found this recipe on Pinterest which lead me to the Chef in Training site.

When trying a new recipe, I usually try to follow the recipe exactly as it is written the first time around and make changes to suit my tastes the next time I make it.

This was a really good, and complete meal to get on the table in a short amount of time as is. But, for me, I will probably adapt the recipe to suit my tastes in this way:

For me, there was too much garlic. Although I prefer brown rice to white, I used white rice because that is what I had in the cupboard. I topped my dish with chopped cilantro, raw chopped onion, and sour cream (plain Greek yogurt is a healthy substitute, but again, already had the sour cream). I think next time, I will use chopped tomatoes as opposed to stewed, a bit too overpowering.

I can see using this mixture to stuff burritos or tacos as well, or serving as a rice bowl. Yum!

I do use organic ingredients whenever I can; especially following the Dirty Dozen rules.
