Brown Rice Summer Salad
1 1/2 cup brown rice (uncooked)
1 14oz can of black beans (presoaked and boiled black beans are better, but if you are short for time a can is fine)
1 red pepper, diced
1 avocado, diced
2 roma tomatoes, finely diced
1/2 cup frozen or fresh corn kernels
1/4 cup soya sauce
2 tablespoon sesame oil
5 tablespoon lemon juice
coriander for garnish
black sesame seeds for garnish
Set 3 cups of water and brown rice to boil with a pinch of salt.Once it starts boiling, cover it with the lid and put the stove on low for about 30 minutes until tender.
While rice is cooking:
Mix together the soya sauce, sesame oil and lemon juice. Set aside.
Mix together the black beans, red pepper, avocado, tomatoes, and corn. Add the cooked rice once it's cooked and at room temperature. Add the dressing.
Garnish with coriander and black sesame seeds and enjoy!
I also like to add some hot sauce as a condiment for some heat!
