Black Beans & Rice Only Better

black beans & rice only better

So last week I discovered two things which were pretty extra.

1. Sweet brown rice.

The name is deceiving cuz it’s not particularly sweet … What’s special about this rice is the smooth and creamy texture. The grains are sorta shiny, short, thick and rounded, like sticky rice. For me, this makes a huge difference. I just love it.

2. Garlic Gomasio Sesame Seeds.

These add lots of flavor. Eden makes them but if you can’t find ’em, try toasting up some regular sesame seeds with a splash of extra virgin olive oil and some garlic and salt.
