I made this meal for dinner last night and I foresee it becoming a staple of my newly vegetarian diet. It’s so simple, delicious, and very cheap. It’s also very quick to make, which is always a definite plus for me.
2 ripe plantains
2 cups uncooked rice
4 cups water
tsp of salt
1 can of black beans, drained
vegetable or coconut oil
1. Cook rice, water, black beans and salt in a rice maker or in a covered pot on the stove. I use a rice maker so it automatically shuts off when done.
2. Slice plantains and fry over medium-high heat in vegetable or coconut oil. They should start to slightly brown.
Serve the rice and beans in a bowl with the fried plantains and slices of queso fresco on top.
