I got the idea for this dish from Angela's savory oats. It's so simple I feel silly giving you a recipe, so I'm not going to. Basically, I just cooked up some brown rice, heated a can of black beans and mixed them with a little chili powder and hot red pepper flakes- sauteed onion and peppers would be a great addition here but I was in a rush (read: lazy). Then, I cut up a ripe avocado, pulled out a jar of salsa, and broke up a few Mary's Crackers (a great addition for crunch). I plated (bowled?) it neatly for some visual appeal but ended up mixing and combining it as I ate. Another happy edition would be a generous dollop of Greek yogurt (aka healthy sour cream) but unfortunately, I was out and, as previously mentioned, lazy. The picture below is from another time I made this using extra veggies and nutritional yeast.
