BLC #13 - Spark Recipe Review

Saturday, March 03, 2012

This week I tried out "Three-Minute Microwave Black Beans, Brown Rice, and Salsa", which you can find at this link:

This is a very simple recipe that only uses 3 ingredients: cooked brown rice, black beans (canned), and mild salsa. This recipe is perfect for someone like me who can't cook well (I should learn, lol...), doesn't like complicated directions, and can find all the ingredients at her local walmart. The longest step in this recipe is cooking the rice, which takes just half an hour. The rest is pretty self-explanatory.

Anyway, onto the review. I enjoyed eating this meal, and it is perfect for those lazy nights where you don't feel like cooking anything more elaborate. The rice and beans fill work well together, and the salsa gives it a nice spicy touch, if you use the mild variety. This meal also provides you with plenty of fiber and protein, though the sodium level is fairly high. This dish is also pretty versatile in that you can add different ingredients onto it, like some shredded cheese and/or chicken.

I give this recipe 4 stars out of 5. Recommended. :)
