recipe from BODY BY HEIDI

Since we all probably over did it this weekend on burgers + fries, let's kick off this short week with a healthy lunch that I've rotated through my diet the past couple years. I also like to ground up some lean turkey to throw on top. Here we go folks......countdown till 40 for me!


Prepare rice as directed, set aside. Place EVOO in a sauce pan and onion sauté until soft. Add garlic, rinsed black beans, tomato paste and fill with water to the top of the beans. Simmer for 25-30 minutes, making sure to dissolve the tomato paste in to the liquid. 

In each bowl:

  • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/2 cup prepared black beans 
  • 1/2 avocado 
  • 1 1/2 cups Organic Girl chopped romaine or spinach
  • 2-3 TBSP organic salsa
  • 1 TBSP organic cilantro chopped
  • 1/2 fresh organic lime, squeezed
  • 1 serving (about 10) tortilla chips to crush on top or I like to scoop the rice bowl with my chips. 

*makes 4-5 servings
