Serve 4-6

Time:  45 minutes (plus bean soaking and cooking

1 cup cooked black beans
3 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1 small onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 small sweet or hot pepper, minced
2 Tbsp cilantro, minced (optional)
1 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 cups hot water
1/2 tsp. sea salt

Heat 1 Tbsp coconut oil over medium heat and pan fry the rice, stirring constantly for a couple of minutes until shiny.  Stir in onion, garlic, peppers, cilantro, and cumin and saute 2 more minutes.  Add hot water, bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat.  Simmer without stirring until water has evaporated and rice is cooked (about 25-30 minutes)
